What: Wisconsin Supreme Court Candidates’ Forum
Wisconsin will elect a Supreme Court Justice next spring. Justice Daniel Kelly, appointed in 2016 by Governor Scott Walker to a seat vacated by the retirement of Justice David T. Prosser, Jr., is seeking election to a full 10-year term. Two challengers, Dane County Circuit Court Judge Jill Karofsky and Marquette University law professor Ed Fallone, are also seeking the seat. All three candidates will appear on a nonpartisan primary ballot on February 18, 2020, and the top two finishers will advance to the general election on April 2, 2020. This will be the first opportunity for the public and the press to see all three candidates side-by-side, discussing the race and their qualifications.
