TV, radio spending tops $4.7 million

The Brennan Center for Justice says special interest spending has not topped $3.5 million on TV ads, breaking the record set in 2008 of $3.38 million.

But JoAnne Kloppenburg’s campaign puts the overall ad spending significantly higher.

With radio and broadcast and cable TV figured in, the total spending by groups and the candidates tops $4.7 million, her campaign tells WisPolitics.

The Kloppenburg campaign says it will end up spending about $230,000 on radio and broadcast and cable TV, while David Prosser spent $71,000.

Among outside groups, the Greater Wisconsin Committee was the largest single spender at $1.9 million.

At least $2.5 million will be spent by conservative groups including Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce, Citizens for a Strong America, the Club for Growth, the Tea Party Express, Americans for Prosperity, the Faith Family Freedom Fund and the Wisconsin Grandsons of Liberty $2,000.

The Brennan Center’s numbers run through Monday and do not include radio or cable TV.
