Fall: OathSpending
Recall: OathSpending

This statewide, anti-abortion advocacy group has long engaged in outside electioneering activities in legislative and statewide campaigns typically by making independent expenditures in numerous Senate and Assembly races to support Republicans and oppose Democrats.

Fall Elections

The group registered to make independent expenditures on behalf of Republican candidates in dozens of legislative races but never reported any spending. Instead all reported spending in the fall elections was done through its corporate entity.

Recall Elections

Wisconsin Right to Life spent $9,168 on independent expenditures to support Republican Governor Scott Walker, Lietenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch and GOP candidates in the four targeted Senate races.
