Current legislators have biggest cash advantage in 10 years
With today’s primary election soon to be in the rear view mirror and the stretch drive to November’s general election fast approaching, those currently holding office in the Wisconsin Legislature have 10 times as much money as their challengers, a report issued today by the Democracy Campaign shows. That’s the largest campaign cash advantage legislative officeholders have enjoyed since 2002.

Reflections on our findings can be heard on the podcast we posted on wisdc.org this morning.
