This is our chance to flip the Wisconsin State Supreme Court to a liberal majority! The current court has a 4-3 conservative majority, but one of the conservatives, current Justice Patience Roggensack, is retiring.

Four candidates are running for an open seat on the Wisconsin State Supreme Court. While officially "non-partisan," Everett Mitchell and Janet Protasiewicz are running as liberal candidates while the other 2 are running as conservative candidates. The top 2 vote-getters will advance to the April 4 General election.
