“Wisconsin’s Supreme Court race is expected to top $6 million in spending. And that’s just for the primary.”

Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel:

Wisconsin’s officially non-partisan Supreme Court race is getting big money from outside interest groups in one of the hotly contested races in the country.

With less than two weeks to go, Wisconsin’s Supreme Court candidates and outside groups are expected to pay out at least $6 million by the Feb. 21 primary election. That puts the race well on its way to eclipsing the record $10 million spent in the entire 2020 contest for the state’s highest court.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel compiled spending data from several sources that track media buys and found that as of Friday, all sides have a combined $5.6 million in spending — about $4.3 million by outside interest groups and more than $1.3 million by the candidates.
