MILWAUKEE (WKOW) – The national Democratic and Republican parties are spending millions in Wisconsin to influence two congressional races.
The Center of Responsive Politics said both parties have combined to spend $3.4 million in the two congressional districts that cover northern Wisconsin. The spending suggests that neither party is conceding anything as the Democrats continue their effort to take back the House.
The heaviest spending has been in the 7th District, where parties have spent $2.8 million. In the 7th district, Republican Sean Duffy faces a challenge from former state senator Patrick Kreitlow.
In the 8th District, GOP Rep. Reid Ribble is taking on political newcomer Jamie Wall. The parties and outside groups have spent $744,000 there.
Democrats need to win a net 25 seats to regain control of the House.
