Spring: OathSpending

This committee was newly formed in fall 2018 by the Wisconsin League of Conservation Voters, a statewide environmental advocacy group, to make independent expenditures on behalf of candidates the League supports in legislative and statewide elections.

About a week before the April 2 election, the committee reported spending $100,000 on mailers and research to support Court of Appeals Chief Judge Lisa Neubauer for the state Supreme Court. Neubauer is running against fellow Court of Appeals Judge Brian Hagedorn to fill the seat being vacated by former Supreme Court Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson.

Last active election: 2018

This organization is registered with the Wisconsin Ethics Commission as an independent expenditure committee following the January 2010 U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Citizens United v. FEC.
