Spring: OathSpending

WEAC Region 6 PAC, formerly called the Rock Valley United Teachers, is the political action committee (PAC) for the Madison regional branch of the Wisconsin Education Association Council (WEAC), the state's largest teachers union.  WEAC and its various regional political action committees generally support Democratic candidates for legislative and statewide offices through outside electioneering activities and direct PAC contributions.

Less than a week before the April 3 spring elections, the PAC filed paperwork showing it would sponsor mailings on behalf of Wisconsin Supreme Court candidate Rebecca Dallet.  Dallet, a Milwaukee County Circuit Court judge, is facing Sauk County Circuit Judge Michael Screnock for a 10-year seat on the state's highest court. 

Even though the race is officially nonpartisan, Dallet is supported by traditional Democratic allies and contributors and Screnock is backed by groups and contributors who usually support Republicans and conservatives.
