Republican Michels spends nearly $12 million on governor run
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Republican Tim Michels has spent nearly $12 million of his own money on his run for Wisconsin governor, campaign finance reports filed ahead of next week's primary election show.
Michels is endorsed by Donald Trump in the race where he faces former Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch and state Rep. Tim Ramthun.
Michels is co-owner of Michels Corp., the state's largest construction company.
Reports filed with the state on Monday show that Michels spent another $4 million of his own money in July on the race, bringing his total spent so far to just under $12 million, or about $1 million a week since he got into the race.
