Wisconsin will feature 10 contested judicial elections this year, including a four-candidate race for incumbent Justice David T. Prosser’s seat on the state Supreme Court.
Other circuit court races of note include challengers to a pair of recently-appointed circuit court judges in Milwaukee and Waukesha counties.
Judge Pedro Colon faces two opponents – prosecutor Roy Korte and municipal judge Christopher Lipscomb – for his Branch 18 seat in Milwaukee, while Judge Kathleen B. Stilling is opposed by Waukesha assistant district attorney Lloyd V. Carter.
Spring primaries are on February 15 and the general election will be held on April 5.
