Fall: OathSpending
Recall: OathSpending

The Racine Tea Party, part of the larger Tea Party movement, was organized in 2009 to oppose Democratic policies and candidates and support conservative policy initiatives and candidates.

This political action committee first registered with the Government Accountability Board  to make independent expenditures on behalf of Republican incumbents in the 2012 recall elections, including Governor Scott Walker, Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch and Senator Van Wanggaard of Racine. These three ofice holders and three other Republican state senators were the targets of recall elections prompted by passage of the governor's 2011 bill strictly limiting public employee collective bargaining rights.

Fall Elections
