Wisconsin REALTORS Political Fund - 1.91 Account

May 24, 2018

Special: OathSpending

This committee was created by the Wisconsin Realtors Association (WRA) in 2012 as Wisconsin REALTORS Political Fund - 1.91 Account to make independent expenditures in Wisconsin elections. Between 2012 and 2016, the committee spent nearly $700,000 to support Republican legislative candidates and the 2013 reelection of conservative Wisconsin Supreme Court Chief Justice Patience Roggensack. WRA's political action committee, RPAC Wisconsin, is routinely among the largest PAC contributors in legislative and statewide elections.

On May 24, the committee reported spending on robocalls in favor of Jon Plumer, the Republican candidate in the June 12th special election to fill a vacancy in the 42nd Assembly District.

Last active election: 2016

This organization is registered with the Wisconsin Ethics Commission as an independent expenditure committee following the January 2010 U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Citizens United v. FEC.
