Supreme Court candidates to report spending

Published On: Feb 11 2013 09:02:09 AM CST

MADISON, Wis. -

Candidates for Wisconsin Supreme Court and state superintendent of schools are required to file their latest campaign spending reports showing activity through Feb. 4.

The reports due Monday are the last showing how much candidates have raised and spent before the Feb. 19 primary election.

Three candidates are running for Supreme Court and one of them will be eliminated in the primary. Those running are incumbent Justice Pat Roggensack, Milwaukee attorney Vince Megna and Marquette University law professor Ed Fallone.

Roggensack launched the first ad of the campaign last week, touting her experience with nearly 17 years as a judge.

In the race for Department of Public Instruction secretary, incumbent Tony Evers faces challenger Republican state Rep. Don Pridemore. There is no primary in that race.
