MADISON, Wis. — The Latest on Wisconsin Supreme Court race (all times local):
Wisconsin Supreme Court candidate Rebecca Dallet is touting her backing by liberals and warning supporters at a San Francisco fundraiser that an onslaught of spending by conservative groups is coming.
Audio of Dallet’s San Francisco fundraiser was circulated Wednesday by the Wisconsin Republican Party. In it, Dallet tells the San Francisco crowd that “your values are our Wisconsin values that we’ve lost along the way.”
Dallet is a Milwaukee County circuit judge and faces Sauk County Circuit Judge Michael Screnock in the April 3 election. The race is officially nonpartisan, but conservatives have lined up behind Screnock while liberals are backing Dallet.
Wisconsin Republican Party executive director Mark Morgan accuses Dallet of trying to “appease far-left donors in San Francisco.”
Wisconsin Supreme Court candidate Michael Screnock plays the tuba in his first television ad of the campaign that comes less than two weeks before the April 3 election.
Screnock’s campaign said Wednesday the ad is running statewide.
Screnock is a Sauk County circuit judge who faces Milwaukee County Circuit Judge Rebecca Dallet in the race for an open seat on the court. Dallet released an ad earlier this week that attacked Screnock for what she says were weak sentences he handed down.
Screnock’s ad doesn’t mention Dallet but instead references his support from sheriffs across Wisconsin, his passion for the Constitution, rule of law and the tuba. Screnock played tuba for the University of Wisconsin marching band in the 1980s and performs a few notes at the end of the ad.
