Shilling Among Incumbents With Big Cash Advantage
Tossing aside an incumbent isn't going to be a picnic for anyone this election season. Especially when trying to raise funds to do. An example of that difficulty can be found in the latest electronic campaign finance report filings in the race for the assembly seat currently held by La Crosse democratic state rep Jennifer Shilling. Shilling hasn't had a Republican challenger since 2002, so you'd expect her campaign account to be flush with funds. And she's not doing too badly. Nearly 60 grand in the bank according to the report filed this week. Republican challenger Julian Bradley, on the other hand, has a long climb up the campaign fundraising ladder, with just about two hundred dollars cash on hand.
