MADISON, Wis. -

Incumbent Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Pat Roggensack has more than three times as much cash on hand heading into next week's primary than her closest challenger.

And a third candidate isn't even bothering to raise money any more.

Roggensack reported Monday that she had $219,000 cash on hand as of Feb. 4 and had raised more than $201,000 over the first five weeks of the year. Marquette University law professor Ed Fallone had nearly $64,000 on hand and raised just over $80,000 during the reporting period.

The third candidate, Milwaukee lemon law attorney Vince Megna, is far behind with just $5,300 cash on hand. He hasn't raised any money so far this year and is telling donors not to bother until after the primary.

One candidate will be eliminated in a primary election next week.
