Madison (AP) - Spending topped more than $1.1 million on television advertising on a pair of Wisconsin Supreme Court contests decided in Tuesday's election.

Court watchdog groups Justice at Stake and the Brennan Center for Justice said Wednesday that Justice Ann Walsh Bradley spent more than $570,000 on TV ads. Her opponent James Daley did not run any ads. Bradley won by 16 points.

The liberal Greater Wisconsin Committee also ran $170,000 worth of ads attacking Daley.

Voters also approved a constitutional amendment changing how the chief justice of the Supreme Court is selected, giving the power to members of the court.

A group funded by the state chamber of commerce spent at least $250,000 on ads supporting the amendment while an outfit funded by the Greater Wisconsin Committee spent at least $115,000.
