A government watchdog says outside groups spent a record amount in the state for a mid-term election.
Matt Rothschild is the executive director of the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign. He says it was about $60 million of outside money telling people who to vote for.
Rothschild says that money was split pretty evenly between the major political parties. He says the total for Democratic groups was nearly $30.1 million. Republicans spent about $31.3 million.
The overall figure obliterated the previous record for a mid-term. Groups shelled out $36.6 million in 2014.
