Reilly says character and integrity won

Paul Reilly says character and integrity won out in his campaign against fellow Waukesah County Judge Linda Van De Water for a spot on the 2nd District Court of Appeals.

But after a heated campaign with accusations flying from both sides, he's refraining from taking any more shots at his opponent.

"I'll let the voters answer that question," Reilly said when asked how his campaign displayed character and integrity compared to Van De Water's.

Van De Water did not return several messages left at her campaign number seeking comment.

Reilly was outspent in the campaign. The final campaign fiance reports, which covered the pre-election period of Feb. 2 through March 22, showed Reilly raised $65,416 for the period, spent $63,108 and had $14,823 cash on hand at the reporting deadline.

Van De Water -- who listed $215,000 in loans -- raised just $8,013 over the period but outspent Reilly with $81,055 in disbursements. She had a $66,654 warchest at the end of the period.

Reilly said he likely received a boost when several conservative talk show hosts in Milwaukee expressed support for his campaign, along with the numerous endorsements he had from law enforcement.

The race included some inflammatory accusations from both sides. Reilly questioned Van De Water's work ethic and temperament, while Van De Water accused him of being soft on crime.

"I was very disappointed with the way the tone turned out," Reilly said of the campaign. "We made a conscience effort from the beginning to run a clean campaign, and we did."
