Although its name suggests Wisconsin origins, this is a Tampa, Florida-based political action committee created to make independent expenditures in support of Republican Governor Scott Walker, who faced a June 5 recall election because of his 2011 plan to restrict public employee collective bargaining rights. 

The PAC reported no financial activity of any kind.

This is the second PAC whose treasurer and contact information is connected to a Tampa acccounting firm - Robert Watkins and Company - that specializes in campaign finance law compliance. The other committee, Ending Spending Action Fund Wisconsin, spent $245,000 on broadcast advertising within 11 days after it registered with the state. The League of Wisconsin Voters, however, did not report any spending.
