Fall: OathSpending

This statewide, anti-abortion advocacy group has long engaged in outside electioneering activities in legislative and statewide campaigns. It typically supports Republicans and opposes Democrats.


At the end of October the PAC first reported spending to report Republican in two state senate districts, Rep. Andre Jacque the challenger in the 1st Senate District and Rep. Dale Kooyenga running for the open 5th Senate District seat.

Wisconsin Right to Life is also involved with issue ads in the gubernatorial election.


More than a month after the 10th Senate District special election held in January, the PAC reported spending on Facebook ads and robocalls in favor of GOP Rep. Adam Jarchow who lost to first time legislative candidate Democrat Patty Schachtner. The northwestern Wisconsin seat was long held by Republican Sen. Sheila Harsdorf who resigned in December 2017 to become GOP Gov. Scott Walker's agriculture secretary.

Last active election: 2016
