Neubauer says she's raised $350,000 for Supreme Court race
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — In an early sign of strength, newly announced Wisconsin Supreme Court candidate Lisa Neubauer says she's already raised more than $358,000.
That includes a personal loan of $250,000.
Neubauer publicly launched her candidacy last week, but a campaign finance report filed Monday shows she had been quietly raising money for the effort for weeks. The report shows she has nearly $358,000 cash on hand.
Neubauer is the chief justice on the state appeals court. She is running to replace retiring Justice Shirley Abrahamson. The election is in April.
No other candidate has officially announced, but several are considering running. They include state appeals court judge Brian Hagedorn, Waukesha County Circuit Judge Maria Lazar and Jefferson County District Attorney Susan Happ.
