Fall: OathSpending

This political action committee is controlled by the Wisconsin League of Conservation Voters, a statewide environmental policy, education and advocacy organization.  In addition to lobbying the governor and legislature on environmental matters, the group is also active in state elections recruiting and supporting legislative and statewide candidates that support its agenda. The league mostly supports Democratic candidates for statewide office and the legislature through this PAC and its independent expenditure committee, but weighs in on open Republican primaries through the Conserve Wisconsin PAC

The PAC sponsored three 60-second radio ads in late October that urged listeners to vote for Democratic challengers Art Shrader in the 50th Assembly race, David Gorski in the 72nd Assembly contest, and Jeff Wright in the 51st Assembly race. Earlier in the year, the PAC had reported spending money on yard signs supporting Mandy Wright in the open 85th Assembly District.

Last active election: 2014
