MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The Wisconsin Supreme Court candidate Brian Hagedorn outraised his challenger, Lisa Neubauer, in January, but still trails her in the total amount of money raised and cash on hand.
Neubauer has raised nearly $863,000 to date, including a $250,000 personal loan. Hagedorn has raised $547,000.
Neubauer reported on Thursday that she has $715,000 cash on hand. Hagedorn has $429,000.
The election, which will choose a justice to replace Justice Shirley Abrahamson on the Supreme Court, is scheduled for April 2.
Neubauer is the chief appeals court judge and her candidacy is backed by liberals. Hagedorn is an appeals court judge and was former Gov. Scott Walker’s chief counsel of four years. He is the choice of conservatives.
The court is currently controlled 4-3 by conservatives.
