MADISON, Wis. (AP) _ Attorney general hopeful Ishmael Ozanne failed to supply a reason for spending $33,000 in campaign cash on state reports.

Ozanne is one of three Democrats vying for that party's nomination in an Aug. 12 primary. His campaign has been floundering financially; the latest finance reports filed Monday with state elections officials show he had only $3,405 on hand.

A review of the reports shows Ozanne gave no reason for spending $33,500 of the $97,000 he spent during the first six months of the year.

The reports list a number of checks with no recipient as well as a number of electronic withdrawals that don't include a reason. One of the withdrawals was made from a New Orleans ATM in May.

Ozanne campaign adviser Stan Davis didn't immediately return messages.
