This is a Virginia-based group that supports Republican candidates for statewide office and the legislature in Wisconsin and around the country. Since the 2010 fall elections, the group has spent an estimated $2.4 million on independent expenditures and phony issue ads in Wisconsin elections.
In mid-October, the group sponsored a 60-second radio ad - here
- and mailings - here
- that accused Democratic Senate Minority Leader Jennifer Shilling, of La Crosse, of not representing her constituents' best interests on health care, tax, and college affordability issues.
Earlier this year, one of the group's independent expenditure committees
doled out about $114,000 to support the election of conservative Justice Rebecca Bradley.
