PAC Contributions

Updated: January 18, 2017

Regularly updated, this database includes records of contributions from political action committees (PACs) and other campaign committees to candidates for the Wisconsin Legislature as well as the governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general, state school superintendent and state Supreme Court justices.

The database also includes political committee committee contributions to the four legislative campaign committees (LCCs) and corporate contributions to each LCC's respective segregated fund as of July 2016.
Past contributions from the now-defunct Wisconsin Election Campaign Fund (WECF) which was intended, at least in part, as a substitute for PAC contributions, are also included in this database.

The contributor records in this database generally date back to 1993, although in limited cases contributions dating as far back as 1991 are included. All contributions are based on reports filed by candidates with the state’s Government Accountability Board. (Click here to see a description of recent updates to the database.)
