Special Interest Smorgasbord, Part 2

Legislative Fundraising Sets Election Year Record

Legislative candidates and fundraising committees accepted nearly $4 million during the first half of 2014 and incumbents held an $8 to $1 cash advantage over challengers at the end of June, a Wisconsin Democracy Campaign review found.

Outside Money Becoming Fixture

Wealthy out-of-state special interests continued to flood Wisconsin with millions of dollars in contributions in 2013 – a trend that began a few years earlier with unprecedented recall elections that drew national attention from big-money donors.

Lawmakers Rely on Alien Contributors

Legislators who approved a state budget and dozens of other policy and spending proposals in 2013 that benefited special interests accepted $2 of every $3 in campaign contributions from well-heeled donors who could not vote for them, a Wisconsin Democracy Campaign review found.
