A national organization dedicated to helping LGBTQ candidates get elected has endorsed Brett Blomme for Milwaukee County Circuit Court judge.
Blomme and Judge Paul Dedinsky are running for a seat on the Branch 5 children’s court. Gov. Scott Walker appointed Dedinsky to the bench in 2018.
Blomme’s campaign announced on Monday that the LGBTQ Victory Fund had endorsed him in the race. The fund provides campaign, fundraising and communication support to LGBTQ candidates around the U.S. Blomme’s campaign said Blomme would be one of two openly gay men in the Wisconsin judiciary if he wins.
In a statement, Blomme said he is working hard to provide Milwaukee County with “an alternative to the Walker-appointed, conservative judge that currently sits in Branch 5.”
The election is scheduled for April 7.
