Wisconsin REALTORS® Help Re-Elect Property Rights Champion to Supreme Court

May 2013

Justice Pat Roggensack, one of the four-justice majority seen as favoring property rights on Wisconsin’s Supreme Court, was running for a second 10-year term.  The 13,000-member Wisconsin REALTORS® Association (WRA) was there to help her secure it, with 57.5 percent of the vote.  WRA led an independent expenditure campaign for her re-election, working closely with a well-established coalition of like-minded partners that includes the state chamber of commerce, the state bankers and builders associations, and the Wisconsin Club for Growth.  WRA has been involved in seven of the past eight contested state Supreme Court races, backing the winner in six of them.  The difference this time came in the form of a $210,000 grant from NAR that financed a two-week statewide radio campaign.
