Campaign #146 is for Judge Lisa Neubauer in Wisconsin
Remember last year when #PostcardsToVoters-supported candidate Judge Rebecca Dallet won a seat on the Wisconsin Supreme Court by double digits? It was reported as a bad omen for Scott Walker and the WI GOP. After all, it was the first time in 23 years that a Democratic candidate won an open seat on that highest state court.
Now, we are going to have more time, with more volunteer writers, and a longer list of terrific Democratic voters to boost winning turnout for Judge Lisa Neubauer.
Excerpted from a column by Dan O’Donnell
“Control” of the Wisconsin Supreme Court is on the line as Court of Appeals Chief Judge Lisa Neubauer (Democrat) takes on the Republican candidate in the race to replace retiring Justice Shirley Abrahamson (Democrat). Replacing Abrahamson, one of the court’s three liberal justices, would not immediately swing the court’s balance of power one way or another. But if Neubauer wins, it would be highly likely that liberals take a 4-3 majority when conservative Justice Dan Kelly runs for re-election in the spring of 2020. Kelly has the extreme misfortune of appearing on the same ballot as the literally dozens of Democratic presidential candidates who are already lining up for a chance to take on President Trump.
Neubauer’s campaign manager, Tyler Hendricks, in a public statement said: “We are seeing record levels of support across the board, including endorsements from more than 320 current and former judges, and a bipartisan group of 50 district attorneys and 25 sheriffs.”
The Republican judge running for this Supreme Court seat helped create and serves on the board of a private school that prohibits anyone working there from being in a same-sex relationship and could expel students who are LGBTQ.
Neubauer campaign manager Tyler Hendricks cited Republican candidate Hagedorn’s blog writings, his work as then-Gov. Scott Walker’s chief lawyer and founding of the school “that discriminates against students and teachers” as reasons why he is not qualified to serve on the bench.
For us, this is a critical step for many important goals in 2020. It’s a huge statewide list. We’re talking another potential record-breaker here, folks.
It’s time to ring up all your friends and prepare them for a weeks-long effort to make sure our fun, friendly, fully-handwritten election reminders get to all the right voters in time. Let’s schedule those parties. Revive any dormant groups.
