[Madison, WI] – Today, Supreme Court Justice Daniel Kelly announced his campaign raised more than $243,000 during the first five weeks of his campaign. With this strong fundraising start, Justice Kelly’s campaign enters the final six months of the year with nearly $240,000 cash on hand – far surpassing that of his opponents. More importantly, this fundraising haul is a sign of a strong campaign with a groundswell of support from across the state.

“I am truly humbled by the incredible outpouring of support I’ve received from supporters all across the state,” Justice Kelly said. “In just the short amount of time since I announced my campaign, we’ve seen an awe-inspiring amount of enthusiasm from Wisconsinites who are passionate about preserving the rule of law on our Supreme Court. That has always been my promise to the people, and I am so grateful for their support.”

After a lifetime of practicing law in Wisconsin, Justice Daniel Kelly was appointed to the Supreme Court in 2016 following the retirement of Justice David Prosser. Justice Kelly graduated from Carroll College and Regent University School of Law, where he was the founding editor-in-chief of the law review. He started his legal career as a law clerk for the late Judge Ralph Adam Fine of the Wisconsin Court of Appeals. Kelly then spent two decades representing clients on a wide variety of legal issues, including the Wisconsin Supreme Court and U.S. Supreme Court. Kelly developed a specialty working on complex cases that protect our constitutional rights.
Justice Kelly is a member of the Carroll University President’s Advisory Council and the Wisconsin Advisory Committee of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights. He and his wife Elisa (a nurse) live in North Prairie with their five children, where they are active in their church and community.
