Election Expands Liberals' Presence on Wisconsin Supreme Court

Wisconsin-Supreme-Court-35

Wisconsin Elections Commission spokesman Reid Magney said that as of midday Tuesday the commission was not aware of any access issues being caused by the snow storm.

Dallet, who has served as a judge for the Milwaukee County Circuit Court in Wisconsin, was first elected to the position in the year 2008.

Screnock was endorsed by Walker and backed by about $400,000 from the state GOP. Big government special interests flooded Wisconsin with distorted facts & misinformation.

Tuesday's election between conservative Michael Screnock and liberal Rebecca Dallet has drawn national attention because its results can gauge voters' mood ahead of the midterms. "We have cut taxes", Walker said in a fundraising email to supporters Wednesday morning.

The National Rifle Association has endorsed Screnock.

"Tonight's results show we are at risk of a #BlueWave in WI", Walker said in a tweet after the results were announced.

'The candidate with the most experience in our courts and standing up for the fairness of our courts won, ' she said.

"I don't want to support anyone who's backed by the NRA right now", said Phil Ouellette, 59, who works in advertising.

Voters who supported Dallet said they hoped her win would send a message. The average of all spring elections since 2000 was 19 percent.

Voters statewide are deciding on a new Supreme Court justice, deciding whether to eliminate the state treasurer and taking on a host of local issues.




"There's more satisfaction on the Republican side on the voter equation than on the Democratic side who hate everything Walker does and did and hate everything Trump does and did, and it's easier to get those voters out", Farrow said. Dozens of schools are already cancelling classes.

Only Washington state has more women on its highest court, but in percentage terms Wisconsin is the highest, according to the University of Minnesota's Smart Politics.

Rebecca Dallet trounced Michael Screnock on Tuesday for a seat on the state Supreme Court, shrinking the court's conservative majority and giving Democrats a jolt of energy heading into the fall election.

Polls are open in the Wisconsin race for the state Supreme Court.

Her endorsements came from former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, former Vice President Joe Biden and New Jersey Sen.

Scott Walker says the win by a liberal candidate for state Supreme Court deals a "serious blow" to the conservative movement.

An expensive and openly partisan Wisconsin Supreme Court race is nearing an end.

More than 995,000 voters out of almost 4.7 million voting-age adults cast ballots in the Supreme Court race this year.

Republicans argued holding such elections are a waste of money given the few weeks lawmakers are in session this year, but Democrats said Republicans were just trying to avoid holding the contests because of the Democratic surge.
