Report: Kloppenburg leads Donald in cashSubmitted: 02/08/2016
MADISON - New campaign finance reports show state Supreme Court hopeful JoAnne Kloppenburg is outpacing rival Joe Donald in fundraising.

Reports covering the month of January were due to the state Government Accountability Board on Monday.

Kloppenburg's report shows she had about $269,000 on hand as of Feb. 1. She raised about $55,925. Donald had $206,800 in the bank and raised about $35,700.

Justice Rebecca Bradley hadn't filed her report by midday Monday and her campaign didn't immediately respond to a request to view it. Her latest reports show she had $176,260 on hand as of Dec. 31.

Bradley, Donald and Kloppenburg will face off in a Feb. 16 primary. The top two vote-getters will advance to the April 5 general election.
