Primary campaigns for State Supreme Court race wraps up Monday

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Three candidates for the Wisconsin Supreme Court are wrapping up their primary campaigns.

Justice Pat Roggensack is challenged Tuesday by Marquette law professor Ed Fallone and Milwaukee Lemon Law attorney Vince Megna.

The top-two vote getters will move on to the April 2nd general election.

Roggensack has raised about three times as much money as Fallone, and Megna has collected relatively little.

The two challengers have accused Roggensack of trying to downplay the Supreme Court’s internal bickering of the last few years – which was highlighted again last week in a court filing from Justice Ann Walsh Bradley. She said a security plan was drafted in March of 2011 to protect her and Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson from conservative Justice David Prosser, three months before Prosser allegedly put Bradley in a choke hold during an argument.

The administration department and Capitol Police said they had no record of a special security plan. But former Capitol Police Chief Charles Tubbs has since confirmed that a plan was indeed put into place.

State officials say about 10 percent of eligible voters are expected to cast ballots Tuesday.
