The Committee to Elect Judge Lori Kornblum has released its fundraising numbers for the period from February 1, 2022 through March 21, 2022.
The Kornblum campaign outraised its opponent $365,079 to $95,229. Going into the final two weeks before election day on April 5, the Kornblum campaign showed $316,571 cash on hand, compared to the opponent’s $47,856. The reports are available on the Wisconsin Ethics Commission’s Campaign Finance Information System website at www.cfis.wi.gov.
Statement by Melissa Mulliken, Kornblum Campaign Manager:
“Our campaign has outraised our opponent in every fundraising period. People are energized by our campaign and Judge Kornblum has shown the independence, intellect, and integrity that people want in a judge. They want judges who share their values – fairness, equal justice under the law, and a respect for the Constitution. Judge Kornblum is running on her record as a prosecutor for over 20 years and as a judge who respects the rule of law and everyone who comes before her.
Our opponent, Maria Lazar, let a convicted rapist go free after only a few months in jail, despite prosecutors recommending seven years, and at sentencing Lazar said that it wasn’t like he “held a knife to someone’s neck he didn’t know and raped her.” Dark money special interests continue to support her and are funding despicable, dishonest ads. The Appleton Post-Crescent reported that “As efforts persist without evidence that widespread voter fraud led to a stolen presidency, key players in the effort by Wisconsin Republicans to overturn the 2020 election” are supporting Maria Lazar. She has tried to distract from her record but it is clear that she lacks the judgement, temperament, and judicial ability to serve the people of Wisconsin on the Court of Appeals.
There is a very clear choice in this race. The excitement, energy, and broad support our campaign is generating are building momentum in this critical, final week.”
