That’s according to a new analysis tracking the liberal activist money behind November’s polarized presidential election.

The Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty report, “Finger on the Scale: Examining Private Funding of Elections in Wisconsin,” finds that of the “safe, inclusive, and secure” elections grants handed out to Wisconsin municipalities in 2020, the lion’s share of funding (86 percent) of approximately $10.3 million went to the so-called “WI-5” cities — Milwaukee, Madison, Green Bay, Kenosha and Racine.

As Wisconsin Spotlight has reported, the Republican stronghold of Waukesha, Wisconsin’s 7th-largest city, received $42,000 from CTCL. Racine, slightly larger, got a grant for $9420,000 — $900,000 more than Waukesha.
