MADISON — The campaign of Judge Jill Karofsky, candidate for Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice, announced today that it had raised more than $120,000 in the early campaign finance period, including more than $105,000 from donors other than the candidate. More than 600 individuals donated to Karofsky’s campaign. This is significantly more than the $70,000 raised from donors reported by Justice Rebecca Dallet in July of 2017, as well as more than seven times as many donors as Judge Lisa Neubauer reported in July of 2018.
“This campaign has generated significant enthusiasm, and we have the momentum we need to be successful,” said Mary McCarthy, spokesperson for Jill for Justice. “As more and more people across Wisconsin say every day, we need Judge Jill Karofsky on the Wisconsin Supreme Court. She will stand up for Wisconsin values, for the rule of law, for independent courts, and for our constitutional rights.
Judge Karofsky currently serves as a criminal court judge in Dane County, and has announced the public support of Justice Rebecca Dallet and former Governor Jim Doyle. She has earned the bipartisan support of judges, sheriffs, DAs, local elected officials, and community leaders across Wisconsin.
