Back to a Battle for the Bench

Back to a Battle for the Bench

The next race for supreme court in Wisconsin just got more interesting.

Longtime liberal Justice Ann Walsh Bradley yesterday announced that she is not running for re-election. Bradley has been on the court for nearly 30 years, and said it’s time to pass the torch. Her decision opens-up the race for Democrats. Former Republican attorney general Brad Schimel is running. Yesterday he said he’s running for the court, not against someone else. Next year’s supreme court race is expected to be just as contentious, and just as expensive as the race last year. That race, which saw Justice Janet Protasiewicz elected, is the most expensive judicial race ever. It saw over 56 million-dollars spent by both sides.
