WI Supreme Court fundraising numbers

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- 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.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin Supreme Court candidate Vince Megna has raised no money over the first five weeks of the year in the race where one candidate will be eliminated in a primary election next week.

The Milwaukee attorney reported Monday that he had about $5,300 cash on hand as of Feb. 4.

Megna faces incumbent Supreme Court Justice Pat Roggensack and Marquette University law professor Ed Fallone in the Feb. 19 primary. The two highest vote-getters will advance to the April 2 election.

Roggensack and Fallone had yet to report their latest fundraising activity by midday Monday.

Megna says he is not trying to raise money and has told potential donors to hold off until after the primary. Megna says there's no point in people donating now.
