Primary election is next week
Roggensack leads pack in Supreme Court fundraising

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.
