Holder and his group, the National Democratic Redistricting Committee, have been active in Wisconsin politics since last year.
The group and its affiliates spent more than $2 million in 2018 to help liberal candidates, including Tony Evers, who won his bid for governor, and Rebecca Dallet, who secured a seat on the state Supreme Court. An arm of Holder’s group also sued last year to force then-Gov. Scott Walker to schedule special elections for open state legislative seats.
Hagedorn campaign adviser Stephan Thompson in a statement noted Neubauer’s has been critical of outside spending in Supreme Court races.
“Clearly, Eric Holder and left wing special interests want to politicize the Supreme Court to accomplish their own agenda,” his statement said. “Lisa Neubauer called on special interest money to stay out and now she’s happy to accept it. The key question is, ‘What’s changed?’ ”
