MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch has almost $700,000 in her campaign fund, even though she does not have a primary challenger next month.
The Republican Kleefisch raised about $520,000 from January through June.
State Senate Democrat John Lehman of Racine raised about $38,000 in the first half of the year. He had $17,000 on hand at the start of July. His primary opponent, Mary Jo Walters of Madison, raised about $800 and has no cash on hand.
Lieutenant governor candidates run by themselves in the primaries. After that, they run on the same tickets as the parties' candidates for governor.
