Supreme Court candidates debate today

MILWAUKEE (WSAU)   The three candidates for a Wisconsin Supreme Court seat will debate each other only once – and that’s today in Milwaukee. Justice Pat Roggensack is trying to get re-elected to her second 10-year term. She’s opposed by Milwaukee Lemon Law attorney Vince Megna and Marquette law school professor Ed Fallone.

The primary is a week from next Tuesday, and the top two vote-getters will advance to the April general election. Both challengers have mentioned excessive discord among the seven justices, but Roggensack insists that they’re getting along fine. Fallone has made it a bigger part of his campaign, while Megna says the court has divided itself along partisan political lines – and he wants the justices to make it official by giving themselves a party label.

Roggensack is one of the court’s four conservative justices – and her campaign says she follows the rule of law in her rulings, and not the political winds.
