This corporation was created to make independent expenditures to support incumbent Republican Assembly representatives, including Ed Brooks of Reedsburg, Lee Nerison of Westby and Travis Tranel of Cuba City.  It also indicated support for incumbent Democrat Nick Milroy of South Range who was unchallenged in the 2012 election.  The group has a Madison address but its two contacts live in Mauston and Richland Center, according to documents filed with the state.

The group only reported spending on behalf of Representative Tranel.

This organization is registered with the Government Accountability Board following the January 2010 U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Citizens United v. FEC as a corporation making independent disbursements.
