Spring election: OathSpending

This group claims it's a coalition of community organizations and labor unions created in 2011. It advocates for a higher federal minimum wage. The group's political action committee was formed in 2012 and filed documents intending to support Democratic challengers in primaries in three Milwaukee-area legislative races. The challengers won their primaries, but organization reported no independent expenditures in those elections.

In the spring 2013 nonpartisan elections the group indicated it might make independent expenditures supporting incumbent State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Evers and incumbent Supreme Court Justice Pat Roggensack's challenger, but the PAC only reported spending in the Supreme Court race.
