“As Judge Karofsky travels the state, she continues to garner support from every corner of Wisconsin, and we have the resources in place to be successful in both the primary and general elections,” said Alanna Conley, spokesperson for Jill for Justice. “Jill sees enthusiastic crowds responding to her message wherever she goes, and that’s why she has more endorsements, more volunteers, more donors, and more resources for the home stretch. Judge Jill Karofsky is ready to bring her experience, values, and energy to the Wisconsin Supreme Court.”
