Nelson raises nearly $264,000 in Senate bid last quarter

Democrat Tom Nelson Announces 2022 Bid To Unseat Johnson

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Democrat Tom Nelson says he has raised nearly $264,000 in the first three months of the year in his bid for the U.S. Senate, about a quarter of what challenger Alex Lasry brought in over six weeks.

Nelson, the Outagamie County executive, has cast himself as the financial underdog in the race. He faces Lasry, a Milwaukee Bucks executive and son of a billionaire, and state Treasurer Sarah Godlewski, who is married to a millionaire.

They are all running for the seat currently held by Republican U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson, who has yet to say whether he will seek a third term next year.
