PAC Spending In Supreme Court Race Favors Roggensack


Incumbent state Supreme Court Justice Pat Roggensack’s financial lead over her challenger in the April 2 election has narrowed. But a watchdog group monitoring campaign spending in the race says the money being spent by outside groups on the election is very lopsided in favor of Roggensack.

The latest spending reports shows she spent $351,000 since February 5 – more than twice the $172,000 spent by her opponent, Marquette University law professor Ed Fallone. Mike McCabe of the Wisconsin Democracy campaign says those numbers pale in comparison to the tens of thousands being spent on issue ads in favor of Roggensack or against Fallone.

“There are no groups on the left that have come close to matching what Club for Growth, or Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce, or the Wisconsin Realtors have been spending. There’s no group on the left – yet, anyway – that has been spending in six figures.”

The largest amount of spending by outside groups in support of Fallone is coming from the left-leaning We Are Wisconsin fund.
