Dallet raised $271k for Supreme Court bid after giving campaign $200k

Milwaukee County Judge Rebecca Dallet raised nearly $271,000 for her Supreme Court bid last month, thanks largely to the $200,000 personal loan she made to the campaign.

Meanwhile, Tim Burns’ campaign says the attorney will report raising $120,000 after getting into the race May 1. That includes $1,000 of his own money to help start the account.

Beyond the loan, Dallet raised $79,734, including a $20,000 donation from John Miller, founder and principal of Arenberg Holdings, a venture capital fund.

She spent $4,533 and had $279,734 in the bank, according to her report.

Dallet has previously contributed to her circuit court campaign and listed total outstanding loans of $281,000.

The campaign of Sauk County Circuit Court Judge Michael Screnock, the third candidate seeking the open seat on the Supreme Court, is not expected to report much of a haul after getting into the race two weeks before the reporting period closed. His campaign said he did not focus on fundraising in those first few weeks.

Reports covering the first half of 2017 are due today.
