Kloppenburg Campaigns for WI Supreme Court

Ahead of Sunday’s State Supreme Court Justice debate, Action 2 News sat down with candidate Joanne Kloppenburg who was in Green Bay campaigning.

Judge Kloppenburg says there’s a huge difference between her and her opponent, incumbent Justice Rebecca Bradley.

Kloppenburg says Bradley is backed by conservative politicians and says her own lack of political affiliation should be important to voters.

“I have a proven track record. I have issued hundreds of Appellate Court decisions that show that I am an Independent, and fair, and a thoughtful Appellate Court judge,” said Kloppenburg.

In a previous debate, Bradley said her judicial application of the law is as it’s written, not based on personal beliefs. Action 2 News will be talking to Bradley on Monday and will have a closer look at the issues next week.

Sunday’s debate was broadcasted on WBAY TV-2 at 10:30 a.m. (WPT has the full debate archived here).

Sep 17, 2015 | MILWAUKEE (AP)  — Appeals court Judge Rebecca Bradley has kicked off her campaign for an open Wisconsin Supreme Court seat with a brief event in downtown Milwaukee that featured endorsements from several Republican law enforcement officials.

Bradley said Thursday she will strictly adhere to the U.S. Constitution and won’t “legislate from the bench” after a pair of sheriffs and a county prosecutor touted her commitment to uphold the law as it’s been written.

Bradley has had a quick rise since Gov. Scott Walker appointed her to the Milwaukee County Circuit in 2012, a seat she retained by election the next year.

Walker appointed her to the Court of Appeals in May.

She will face fellow state appellate court Judge Joanne Kloppenburg and Milwaukee County Circuit Court Judge Joe Donald in a February primary.
