MADISON, Wis. (AP) — In an early sign of strength, the new Wisconsin Supreme Court candidate Lisa Neubauer says she’s already raised more than $358,000.
Neubauer publicly started her candidacy last week, but a campaign finance report filed Monday shows she had been quietly raising money for the effort for weeks. The report shows she has nearly $358,000 worth of cash on hand.
Neubauer is the chief justice on the state appeals court. She is running to replace Justice Shirley Abrahamson, who is retiring. The election is in April.
No other candidate has officially announced, but several are considering running. They include state appeals court judge Brian Hagedorn, Waukesha County Circuit Judge Maria Lazar and Jefferson County District Attorney Susan Happ.
