Spring: OathSpending

This is a group created in 2003 by David and Charles Koch, the billionaire owners of Koch Industries and Wisconsin-based papermaker Georgia-Pacific.

In early December it reported spending over $13,000 on canvassing and printing expenses to support incumbent Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Daniel Kelly in the 2020 spring election.

Kelly was appointed to the Supreme Court in 2016 by Republican Governor Scott Walker. This is his first election. Kelly's challengers are Dane County Circuit Court Judge Jill Karofsky and Marquette University law professor and erstwhile Supreme Court candidate Ed Fallone.

Last active election: 2019

This organization is an unregistered independent expenditure committee that is required to report any such spending done within 60 days of a primary or an election to the Wisconsin Ethics Commission per Chapter 11, Subchapter X of Wisconsin Statutes.
