WI Democracy Campaign unveils 10 year Study


MADISON (WKOW) -- Wisconsin's voting patterns may be mixed, but its money is distinctly red.
That's according to a Democracy Campaign review of 10 years worth of campaign contributions. The review found individual contributions of $100 or more totaled $94.4 million from 2003 through 2012.
61% of that money went to Republicans, and 39% went to Democrats.

Mike McCave from the Democracy Campaign says "You would have thought that given the fact that we had Governor Doyle for 8 years and the Democrats had control of the legislature, that money would flow to power and that Democrats would have raked in more cash."

The study also found that most of the state isn't donating much at all. Nearly 90% of the money came from just 21% of the state's zip codes. A majority of which were located primarily in suburban areas near bigger cities.
