Court hopeful Karofsky raises $227K in second half of 2019

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin Supreme Court hopeful Jill Karofsky raised about $227,500 in the second half of 2019, accordin to campaign finance reports released by her campaign on Tuesday.

Reports detailing fund-raising activity over the last half of the year are due to the Wisconsin Elections Commission on Wednesday. The liberal-leaning Karofsky’s campaign released figures Tuesday showing she raised $227,552 over that period, bringing her fund-raising total for 2019 to $348,600. Her totals included a $15,000 loan she gave her campaign.

She spent $167,328 over the course of the year and had $181,274 in the bank by Dec. 31.

Karofsky and the liberal-leaning Ed Fallone are trying to unseat the conservative incumbent Justice Dan Kelly. All three will face off in the Feb. 18 primary, and the top two vote-getters will advance to the general election on April 7.

Officials with Fallone and Kelly’s campaigns didn’t immediately respond to emails Tuesday requesting their fund-raising totals.
