Election Expands Liberals' Presence on Wisconsin Supreme Court
Who is Rebecca Dallet? Liberal Judge Wins Wisconsin Supreme Court Elections
05 April, 2018, 01:49
"I attribute it to Wisconsin voters standing up to special interests", said Dallet, a Milwaukee County Circuit Court judge.
Although candidates technically do not have party affiliation, the state party can work on the candidate's behalf.
Screnock, a Sauk County circuit judge, was endorsed by Walker and backed by about $400,000 from the state GOP.
The race for a 10-year seat was nonpartisan in name only, with millions in ad spending and public endorsements from the likes of Joe Biden, Eric Holder and the National Rifle Association. It supported Trump in 2016-the first time it'd favored a Republican presidential candidate in 32 years-after electing Republican Scott Walker as governor in 2010.
Walker says the Dallet win shows "we are at risk of a Blue Wave in Wisconsin". Her win narrows the pro-Walker conservative majority on the court to 4 to 3 - and marks the first win by a liberal to an open seat since 1995.
In a second tweet Walker claimed "big government special interests" were planning to "target" him as he faces reelection for a third term next fall.
That is the highest turnout for a spring election since 2011 when the Supreme Court race came in the middle of massive protests against Gov. Scott Walker's collective bargaining restrictions and topped 34 percent.
Dallet, 48, will become the sixth woman on the court.
Dallet's victory comes a week after Walker and Republicans stepped away from their effort to block special elections from being held in the Senate District 1 and Assembly District 42, which have been vacant since December. "I think people are exhausted of what's been going on in our state in terms of the money coming in to buy these elections and people spoke out tonight". In Outagamie County, Dallet bested Screnock by 12 percentage points while Walker won that county in 2014 by 20 percentage points.
Scholz said Dallet was able to reach voters in areas of the state former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton lost in 2016.
Screnock was appointed judge by Walker in 2015.
Both candidates argued the other couldn't be trusted to serve as an independent voice on the state's highest court because of the partisans supporting their campaigns.
