8th District candidate’s campaign funding detailed

Tuesday, voters in the 8th Congressional District will select a Republican candidate to take on incumbent Democrat Steve Kagen. I’ve compared information contained in each candidate’s Federal Elections Commission Report as of June 30, in what I hope is a simple format so voters can see who’s funding the candidates’ campaign, where they come from, any special interests they may represent and who the campaign fundraiser is. I hope you find it useful and informative.
