Live thread: Wisconsin Supreme Court election - Prosser vs Kloppenburg

This election is important nationally too. If Kloppenburg is elected the Wisconsin mandate by the electorate in 2010 in this state will be negated by the WI Supreme Court and the unions will have won.

I live in a hardcore conservative area and discovered today that my Prosser yardsign was mutilated and thrown into one of my plantings.

Pray for Wisconsin and for Prosser's election!

I completely forgot about that WI was voting on this today. Keep those of us in other states updated, and thanks for the thread!

The counties of the city and around Madison will be the last to report.

The decent people better fight back or the unions will be running the show and WI will be bankrupt.

I wouldn’t put any real stock in early polling data (if it’s out there). In my opinion/experience most conservatived minded people work during the day and don’t get to the polls until after work. I’m guessing if there is early data, it would probably tip in the Kloppenberg direction.

I am surprised it is not an ethics violation for a Supreme Court candidate to make a promise like this.

There is a new focus on unions. They could win because they use the billions from tax payers back against them.

Judge Prosser came by the phone bank I was at today. He seemed upbeat. A guy next to me who’s on the volunteer staff said that Wauwatosa and Brookfield have very strong turn outs which is good for our side.

Making calls, I was surprised that they had us calling numbers in Milwaukee for the Country exec race. That tells me that they think things are looking good.

You can bet that the union knuckledraggers and their “useful idiots” from the local colleges have already printed up and filled out enough “ballots” to put that horse-faced, Nazi biatch, Kloppenburg, over the top.

Thanks for starting the thread.

This election is critical for Wisconsin, as a liberal majority on the Supreme Court (if Prosser loses) would mean big trouble for all of Gov. Walkers reforms.

But it’s also critical nationally - because this is the first indication of where a narrowly divided state like Wisconsin will fall - with the union/hippie/protester/liberal/thugs? Or with the new conservative majority that swept into statewide victory last November?

Not true. Most of Madison will report early to fabricate a trend. Rural areas to the north will take longer.

The Walker machine is watching fraud very carefully.

Is this accurate?

______________________________________________________

Justice Prosser

Served 12 years on the bench as Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice
Prior to serving for the supreme court Justice Prosser served 18 years in the legislator
Served 2 years as Outagamie County District Attorney
Served 2+ years in the United States Dept. of Justice
In all these roles Justice Prosser has created, applied, and interpreted law and received high marks for his performance in every category.

Judicial Philosphy:

“I present myself as a judicial conservative, devoted to the constitution and the rule of law. My job is to find the law and apply it properly, not to make it up to advance some ideological objective.”
Judicial Record:
In 12 years, Justice Prosser has participated in more than 900 published Supreme Court decisions and has written opinions in almost every area of law. His record for impartiality and scholarship is well known to people who closely follow the work of the court.

I read earlier on NRO that UW students in Madison were NOT storming the polling locations, which is certainly good news if true.

Jean. I heard on FOX News today that if Kloppenburg wins, she doesn't take over until August. Do you know anything about that?

Waiting anxiously for news from your state here in CT. Polls closing soon I hope! Meanwhile, not a word or a picture on the news thus far tonight, I was hoping to see something on turnout. Just thought I’d share that we’re as anxious as you are! Please share all you hear...

Same. It's not that I think Kloppenburg is really more popular, it's just that I suspect the union folks and college mushheads are more fired up to show up and vote.

We shall see, but I have a feeling we won't like the outcome of this election.

It's in the bag .. for Prosser.. looking at this turn-out. ;-) Good Luck!

Voters line up to get ballots before voting Tuesday at Madison Elementary School in Wauwatosa.

Contentious ballot includes state Supreme Court, Milwaukee County executive

The contests for state Supreme Court justice and Milwaukee County executive are officially nonpartisan contests, but both could be heavily influenced by strong feelings about Gov. Scott Walker.

I hope to God they don’t vote more than once and are offered things to vote a certain way. A good friend is a retired school teacher and she says they (SEIU) are whining over having to pay health insurance like the rest of us- 80-20 and not 100% tax payer funded. They are fighting over collective bargaining in which bottom line allows bad teachers to continue to teach.

I can't say I am really very optimistic myself, but if we lose here it is just one set back. A big one, but just one battle in a bigger war.

The problem here was, in my opinion, the way this was done allowed the unions/lefties/hippies a lot of time to get very organized and energized. Personally I wish Walker and the GOP had passed repair bill the way the ultimately did within days of the fleebaggers leaving.

Oh well, what's done is done. I think most pundits expect Prosser to lose, so if we win it will be monumental victory.
