Democrat Lasry puts $1.5 million into US Senate bid
Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Alex Lasry, who is on leave from his job as an executive with the Milwaukee Bucks, reports that he has put in another $1.5 million of his own money into the crowded primary race.
Lasry is among a field of nearly a dozen Democrats hoping to defeat Republican Sen. Ron Johnson, who officially announced three weeks ago that he would seek a third term.
To date, Lasry has put in $2.35 million of his own money into the race.
He has raised $5.1 million, about $2.8 million of which comes from donations, and had just over $1.1 million cash on hand.
