Supreme Court Justice Dan Kelly raised more than double what his challengers did in the first weeks of a bid for a 10-year term on the state’s highest court.
Kelly raised $243,794 since June while Dane County Judge Jill Karofsky pulled in $121,000 and Marquette University Law School professor Ed Fallone brought in $73,423, according to campaign aides and finance reports.
All three candidates will compete in a Feb. 18 primary election. The two candidates with the most votes will be on the ballot in an April 7 general election, a date that coincides with presidential primary voting in Wisconsin.
Kelly was appointed to the court in 2016 by former Gov. Scott Walker after working as an attorney for the Milwaukee law firm Reinhart Boerner Van Deuren and as the vice president and general counsel for the Kern Family Foundation.
