UPDATE: Roggensack Leads Pack in Supreme Court Fundraising

UPDATED Monday, February 11, 2013 --- 3:22 p.m.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Incumbent Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Pat Roggensack has more than three times as much cash on hand heading into next week's primary than her closest challenger.

And a third candidate isn't even bothering to raise money any more.

Roggensack reported Monday that she had $219,000 cash on hand as of Feb. 4 and had raised more than $201,000 over the first five weeks of the year. Marquette University law professor Ed Fallone had nearly $64,000 on hand and raised just over $80,000 during the reporting period.

The third candidate, Milwaukee lemon law attorney Vince Megna, is far behind with just $5,300 cash on hand. He hasn't raised any money so far this year and is telling donors not to bother until after the primary.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Candidates for Wisconsin Supreme Court and state superintendent of schools are required to file their latest campaign spending reports showing activity through Feb. 4.

The reports due Monday are the last showing how much candidates have raised and spent before the Feb. 19 primary election.

Three candidates are running for Supreme Court and one of them will be eliminated in the primary. Those running are incumbent Justice Pat Roggensack, Milwaukee attorney Vince Megna and Marquette University law professor Ed Fallone.

Roggensack launched the first ad of the campaign last week, touting her experience with nearly 17 years as a judge.

In the race for Department of Public Instruction secretary, incumbent Tony Evers faces challenger Republican state Rep. Don Pridemore. There is no primary in that race.
