Wisconsin Supreme Court candidate Donald raises $109,000, Kloppenburg brings in $27,000


MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin Supreme Court candidate Joe Donald has raised $109,000 in the opening weeks of his campaign for the race to be determined next spring, while opponent Joanne Kloppenburg raised $27,000.

Donald, a Milwaukee County circuit judge, and Kloppenburg, a state appeals court judge, reported the fundraising on Monday.

They both formed campaign committees in mid-June and the report only covers the period through the end of that month.

Kloppenburg loaned her campaign $25,000, the bulk of what she reported.

Donald loaned his campaign $7,500 and he received the maximum $10,000 donations from four people.

Donald and Kloppenburg are seeking the seat currently held by Justice Patrick Crooks. Crooks has not said whether he is running for re-election.
