The groups include the Greater Wisconsin Committee, which plans to spend at least $162,000 on television ads; Service Employees International Union, which plans to spend at least $131,140 on brochures and canvassing; For Our Future, which plans to spend at least $79,900 on brochures and canvassing; Center for Popular Democracy, which plans to spend at least $18,000 on campaign literature; and the Greater Wisconsin Political IE Fund, which plans to spend $10,000 on digital ads.

Americans for Prosperity plans to spend at least $17,300 on canvassing and staff to support Hagedorn.
