An arm of the Republican Attorneys General Association (RAGA) called the Rule of Law Defense Fund (RLDF) made robocalls urging listeners to attend a “Stop the Steal” rally on Jan. 6 along with the time and location of the protest.
RAGA is a political organization that helps elect Republican attorneys general and can accept unlimited contributions from wealthy individuals and corporations.
The top WISCONSIN contributors to RAGA were:
MIllerCoors (now Molson Coors), of Milwaukee, $75,000
Foley & Lardner, of Milwaukee, $60,950
Wisconsin Realtors Association, of Madison, $50,000
Kwik Trip, of La Crosse, $25,000
Klondike Properties, of Monroe, $20,000
Michael Best Strategies, of Madison, $15,875
Dairy Business Association, of Green Bay, $10,000
Forest County Potawatomi Community, of Crandon, $10,000
Kinnard Farms, of Casco, $2,500

Norm-e-Lane Inc., of Chili, $1,000
Pagel’s Ponderosa Dairy, of Kewaunee, $1,000
Shiloh Dairy, of Greenleaf, $1,000
RAGA was active in the 2018 Wisconsin state elections, doling out more than $2.8 million on electioneering activities to attack Democratic candidate Josh Kaul. Kaul defeated incumbent Republican Attorney General Brad Schimel in that race.
Federal prosecutors offered an ominous new assessment of last week’s siege of the U.S. Capitol by Trump’s supporters on Thursday, saying in a court filing that rioters intended “to capture and assassinate elected officials.”
