Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Dan Kelly has outraised his two more liberal opponents over the first six months of the year.
Kelly, who was appointed to the bench in 2016 by Republican Gov. Scott Walker, is being challenged by Dane County Circuit Judge Jill Karofksy and Marquette University Law School professor Ed Fallone. The first campaign finance reports showing how well the candidates were doing in raising money were due Monday.
Kelly’s campaign reported raising nearly $244,000 through June. That is more than double the $121,000 Karofsky’s campaign said she raised. That included a $15,000 loan Karofsky made to her campaign.
Fallone trailed in fundraising, bringing in $73,000, which included a $20,000 personal loan.
Kelly has about $238,000 cash on hand compared with nearly $111,000 for Karofsky and about $50,000 for Fallone.
The election is April 7, the same day the state holds its presidential primary. A primary to narrow the field from three to two candidates is Feb. 18.
