Partisan Groups Spending Big in Wisconsin Election

Republican and Democratic groups have reportedly tossed
nearly $24-million dollars into Wisconsin
elections during this cycle. The Wisconsin Democracy Campaign, a watchdog
group, reports that Republican advocacy groups have spent over $17 million,
while Democratic advocacy groups have dropped just over $6.6 million. An
estimated $17 million of that money has been spent on the race for governor. The
top spenders include a pair of PACs controlled by the Republican Governors
Association and the Greater Wisconsin Political Independent Expenditure Fund –
which is a group backing Democratic candidates.
