Wisconsin Democracy Campaign Opens The Books On The Financial Side Of The Primary Election


Wisconsin Democracy Campaign (8/15/18)

Unless otherwise indicated, this page provides summary financial data for all candidates on the ballot for governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general, secretary of state and treasurer for each candidate’s respective election cycle through the end of the most recent reporting period.

Candidates are listed by office (governor first), by party ballot order and alphabetically by name.

Clicking on a candidate’s name will show contributor information for the current election cycle when available. (Note: The orgiinal posting of this page did not include contributor lists for all treasurer candidates. They have since been added.)
