With less than a week to go before the state Senate recall, election fundraising has become a major issue in the 23rd state Senate District.
Republican state Sen. Terry Moulton’s campaign issued a press release this week saying that 80% of challenger Kristen Dexter’s donors live outside the district. Moulton Campaign spokesman Matt Capristo wouldn’t agree to an interview, but said in the release that “the most recent campaign finance report is further confirmation that Kristen Dexter’s recall campaign was created, paid for, and orchestrated by Madison liberals.”
Kristen Dexter of Eau Claire has won the 23rd state Senate Recall primary and now faces Republican Terry Moulton. The June 5th election won't be the first time the two have faced each other on the ballot.
