MADISON — Democratic U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin’s campaign says she easily out-raised her two Republican challengers in the last three months of 2017.

Baldwin’s campaign said Friday she raised more than $2.8 million in the fourth quarter and has $7 million on hand.

Republicans Kevin Nicholson and Leah Vukmir are vying for the right to challenge Baldwin in November.

Nicholson’s campaign said Monday that the Delafield business consultant will report raising more than $800,000 for the fourth quarter. He has raised $1.2 million since he got into the race.

Vukmir’s campaign said she raised more than $400,000 in the fourth quarter. She has raised about $645,000 to date.

Outside groups have already spent nearly $3.1 million against Baldwin and $2.4 million in support of Nicholson, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.
