MADISON, Wisconsin — An analysis of TV ad spending in Wisconsin's Supreme Court race finds incumbent Justice Ann Walsh Bradley has spent more than $510,000.
Bradley faces Rock County Circuit Judge James Daley in the election next Tuesday. The analysis Wednesday from two groups, Justice at Stake and the Brennan Center for Justice, found Daley had yet to book any TV time. But the groups say records indicate Daley has purchased radio ad buys totaling $108,000.
The groups also say an outside group has begun spending in the race. The liberal Greater Wisconsin Committee has spent $101,000 for a TV ad criticizing Daley for a sentence given to a convicted child abuser.
The office is nonpartisan, but Bradley has portrayed Daley as aligned with the GOP. He's characterized Bradley as a liberal activist.
