MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - The Wisconsin Democracy Campaign reports two-thirds of the more than $100 million spent in the series of recall elections over the last two years went to vendors in other states.

An estimated $32 million for campaign services were spent with Wisconsin businesses and groups, but $69 million were for consulting, printing, mailing and other media services from outside the state. More than half of the total money spent went for radio and television ads.

The details released Tuesday were based on spending reports connected to the recall elections of Governor Scott Walker, Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch and 13 state senators.
