This political action committee was soley created to make independent expenditures in support of Republican Governor Scott Walker who faced a June 2012 recall election for his successful 2011 plan to restrict public employee collective bargaining rights.  Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch and four GOP state senators also face recall elections. 

In early May 2012, the PAC spent $245,000 on a 30-second television ad - here via WisPolitics.com - that applauded Walker for balancing the state budget.

At the end of the 2012 the PAC terminated its registration with the state's Government Accountability Board

Ending Spending Action Fund Wisconsin was part of a larger national group that spent nearly $10 million opposing President Barack Obama's reelection in 2012.
