Marquette University Law School Prof. Ed Fallone reported $73,424 in receipts in eight weeks of fundraising for his Supreme Court bid.

That puts him behind the $243,794 that Justice Daniel Kelly raised over the first five weeks of his bid for a full 10-year term and the $121,000 that Dane County Judge Jill Karofsky pulled in between early May and June 30, the close of the reporting period.

Fallone spent $22,977 and finished June with $50,446 in the bank and reported a $20,000 personal loan and a $100 contribution to the campaign.

Karofsky gave her campaign $15,000, and her campaign said she would report $110,913 in the bank. Kelly, meanwhile, will report $238,484 cash on hand, his campaign said.

Fallone is the only one of the three who had filed a fundraising report for the most recent period by Monday morning.

He received $8,555 from attorney Mark Thomsen, a member of the state Elections Commission, and $2,500 from attorney Tim Burns, who ran unsuccessfully for the state Supreme Court in 2018. Burns also transferred $345 to Thomsen from his old campaign account.

Reports for state candidates covering fundraising over the first six months of the year are due Monday.
