MILWAUKEE (AP) — The candidate knocked out of the race for a seat on the Wisconsin Supreme Court is endorsing Court of Appeals Judge JoAnne Kloppenburg.
Milwaukee County Circuit Court Judge Joe Donald announced the endorsement Tuesday. Donald says Kloppenburg shares his “commitment to equal justice under the law, to an independent judiciary and to ensuring the Supreme Court is the people’s court.”
Kloppenburg says Donald raised some critically important issues during the primary and will work with him on criminal justice reform and racial disparities.
Incumbent Rebecca Bradley finished the primary with 45 percent of the vote, compared to Kloppenburg’s 43 percent. Donald had 12 percent of the vote.
Voters will choose a Supreme Court justice on April 5.
