Money Trails: Sen. Kohl’s would-be replacements

Sen. Herb Kohl has said he'll retire in January 2013.

We shared some of the names that have been tossed around lately as replacements for retiring Democratic Sen. Herb Kohl’s seat with the folks we’re working with at MAPLight.org. They, in return, dug up the ghosts of campaigns past.

Here they are: The top industries, interest groups (think of these as subgroups of industries) and individuals contributing to eight prominent maybes.

If you want to monkey with the data yourself, you can download this Excel spreadsheet. Or try your own searches at MAPLight.org’s new Wisconsin site.
