October 30, 2018

This statewide, anti-abortion advocacy group traditionally supports Republican candidates for legislative and statewide offices. 

The group generally makes reported independent expenditures through a political action committee (PAC) and an independent expenditure committee.   

But in mid-October, the group sponsored a mailing that supported GOP Gov. Scott Walker and opposed Democrat Tony Evers.  Walker faces Evers on the Nov. 6 ballot for a third four-year term.  This is the first time in recent memory the group appeared to use the phony issue ad route for outside electioneering. 

At the end of October its PAC reported spending in two state senate races.
