Conduit/WisPAC Update January 2018


Thank you very much to all of our Conduit and WisPAC contributors in 2017. We were able to build up a substantial war chest for 2018 and still supported many candidates. We held multiple advocacy events around the state and won many points in the biennial budget.

2018 brings new challenges but also new opportunities. Conduit and WisPAC participants will receive more frequent election and legislative updates in the coming year. If this interests you, renew your support for 2018 now. Here are all of our supports in 2017:
