Rep. Tammy Baldwin, D-Wis., announced today her campaign for the U.S. Senate raised $2 million in the first quarter of 2012. More than 40,000 individuals have now contributed to her campaign, and she has $2.7 million cash on hand.
Baldwin, who could become the country’s first openly LGBT senator, has no serious competition for the Democratic nomination. On the Republican side, at least four candidates will fight for their party’s nod later this summer. One of those, former U.S. Rep. Mark Neumann, reported raising $650,000 in the first quarter.
Baldwin is set to speak this Sunday at the Victory Fund’s National Champagne Brunch, which will be held at the Washington Hilton Hotel. For more information or to purchase tickets, go here.
