Chicago Tribune: Conservative Group Spending $300K On Wis. Recall

An affiliate of Citizens United, the conservative group at the center of the U.S. Supreme Court’s landmark campaign finance ruling, says it is spending $300,000 on a Wisconsin state Senate recall election. The website of The Presidential Coalition says the Citizens United affiliate is spending $270,000 on television ads in the Green Bay and Madison television markets. The ad in support of Republican Sen. Luther Olsen started Monday and runs for a week. The group says it is also paying for polling and robocalls. Olsen is one of six incumbent Republican senators targeted for recall who face elections Tuesday. His challenger is Democratic state Rep. Fred Clark.
