More than 600 individual contributions help start year strong
MADISON — The campaign of Judge Jill Karofsky, candidate for Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice, announced today that it had raised about $65,000 in just over one month, with more than 600 individual contributions fueling a strong grassroots campaign.
At the close of the Pre-Primary period ending on Feb. 3, the Karofsky campaign had raised more than $410,000 since the campaign began. Jill for Justice started advertising statewide last week and still had more than $80,000 on hand heading into the final two weeks of the primary contest on Feb. 18.
“Across the state, Judge Karofsky’s message is resonating with voters who want to rid the Supreme Court of the appearance of corruption and elect a justice that reflects Wisconsin values,” said Alanna Conley, spokesperson for Jill for Justice. “Our strong start to 2020 is thanks to our grassroots supporters, who not only donated, but are knocking on doors, calling voters, and distributing yard signs across the state to help elect the most qualified candidate in this race.”
The Spring Primary is Feb. 18, and the general election is set for April 7.
