MADISON - Democratic U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin has raised $2.4 million over the past three months, setting a torrid pace for fundraising in what promises to be an expensive and hotly contested race.

Baldwin said Thursday that she collected $2.4 million for the three-month period covering July through September. 

Baldwin has two announced Republican challengers. Delafield businessman Kevin Nicholson got into the race in late June and raised $400,000. State Sen. Leah Vukmir, of Brookfield, raised $250,000 in three weeks.

Baldwin has raised $7.1 million so far this year and has $5.3 million cash on hand more than a year before the election.

The election is November 2018.
