Feingold reports $2.2M raised since Senate campaign launch

Posted:

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Former Sen. Russ Feingold says he raised more than $2.2 million in the second quarter as he seeks a return to the Senate.

Feingold, a Democrat, says he expects to have almost $2 million in cash on hand when he files federal reports this month.

Feingold announced in May he would try to win back the seat he lost five years ago to Republican Ron Johnson.

A spokeswoman for Johnson didn't immediately respond to a call and email asking about his fundraising. He had $1.5 million cash on hand at the end of March.

The race is expected to be key for Democrats as they hope to reclaim the Senate in 2016.
