Supreme Court ad spending already hits $1.69 million, $3.9 million expected

The Brennan Center for Justice says spending on TV ads in the state Supreme Court race has hit at least $1.69 million. But JoAnne Kloppenburg’s campaign figures the spending on TV, cable and radio through Election Day will be closer to $3.9 million.

The Brennan Center bases its number on information collected by CMAG through yesterday, a week out from the election. Those totals didn't include cable TV or radio.

The group found through Tuesday, the Greater Wisconsin Committee had spent $769,000, the Club For Growth had spent $415,000 and Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce had spent $233,000. The Citizens for a Strong America has also begun running ads, but the Brennan Center said it would be a few days before those numbers started showing up on its tallies.

Kloppenburg campaign manager Melissa Mulliken, however, said information from the campaign’s ad buyer shows $1.9 million in spending by the GWC through the election with $2 million between CFG, WMC, CSA, the Faith Family Freedom Fund and Americans for Prosperity.

Those totals include broadcast and cable TV, as well as radio, she said.
