Wisconsin Judge Race Is a Proxy Election for Right vs. Left

Hosted by

Wisconsin's new Republican Governor Scott Walker has galvanized the left as well as the right, and national interests on both sides have focused on tomorrow's election for the state supreme court. Conservative Justice David Prosser was expected to coast to re-election, but liberal JoAnne Kloppenburg has emerged as a serious challenger. Beyond that, there are so many campaigns to re-call legislators of both parties that the outcome presents potential consequences for political control of a battleground state in next year's presidential election. Craig Gilbert writes for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
