Unions, GOP give to attorney general candidates

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Labor unions, the state Republican Party and the state realtors association are all pumping money to Wisconsin’s attorney general candidates.

Democrat Susan Happ and Republican Brad Schimel each filed campaign finance reports Monday detailing contributions over the last three months.

Happ’s report shows her top donors were the Wisconsin Education Association Council’s political action committee, the United Auto Workers’ Wisconsin political action committee, the Wisconsin Laborers District Council and the National Education Association Fund for Children and Public Education. Each entity gave her $21,560.

Schimel’s report shows he got $33,600 from the state GOP; $21,560 from the Wisconsin Realtors Association’s political action committee; $11,560 from the Republican Attorneys General Association’s Wisconsin political action committee and $9,000 from Wisconsin billionaire Diane Hendricks.
