MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Supporters of plans to expand Wisconsin’s school voucher programs have spent almost $10 million on state elections over the past decade.

The Wisconsin Democracy Campaign says the funding was mostly directed at candidates for statewide and legislative offices – mostly Republican candidates.

The biggest beneficiary was Governor Scott Walker, who received more than $1.2 million.

A lot of the money went to conservatives on the Wisconsin Supreme Court, plus lawmakers who are in a position to direct the current debate over expanding those voucher programs.
