MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A new analysis finds that Republicans in control of the Wisconsin Legislature raised nearly three times more money for their campaigns last year than did Democrats.

The Wisconsin Democracy Campaign reported Wednesday that Senate and Assembly Republican campaigns raised $3.09 million in 2013. That compares with $1.05 million collected by Democrats.

Republicans have an 18-15 majority in the Senate and a 60-39 majority in the Assembly. All 99 Assembly seats and 17 in the Senate are up for election in November.

Donors and political committees can contribute up to $500 every two years to Assembly candidates and a maximum $1,000 every four years to Senate candidates.
