MADISON (WKOW) -- Two Republican candidates for the U.S. Senate race announce their second quarter fundraising totals.
Mark Neumann says he raised $733,000 in the second quarter, while challenger Eric Hovde says he raised about $237,000.
Neumann and Hovde announced the totals on Monday. Former Gov. Tommy Thompson and state Assembly Speaker Jeff Fitzgerald are also running in the GOP primary.
The actual filings made with the Federal Election Commission were not immediately available, but both the Neumann and Hovde campaigns put out statements with their totals.
Hovde's campaign says the fact that Hovde has been able to raise what he did as a political newcomer is "remarkable."
Neumann's campaign says the former congressman has saved his money and plans to "dominate the airwaves" leading up to the August 14 primary.
The winner of the GOP primary will face Democrat Tammy Baldwin in the November 6 general election.
