MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - There’s a good reason you haven’t heard much from the three candidates for the Wisconsin Supreme Court.
It’s because they haven’t raised much money, at least going into the New Year.
Thursday is when the statewide candidates are supposed to report how much they’ve raised and spent through December.
Justice Pat Roggensack’s campaign said she had $55,000 on hand, after raising almost $39,000 last year. Milwaukee attorney Vince Megna reported having $7,000 on hand at the start of the year, after raising almost $11,000. A third candidate, Marquette law professor Ed Fallone, had not disclosed his figures yet.
The three are running in a February 19th primary.
There’s also a statewide race this spring for Wisconsin public school superintendent, but it’s not until April. Challenger Don Pridemore, who’s running against incumbent Tony Evers, said he used $49,000 of his own money for his campaign through the end of the year – and he raised another $13,000.
