Judge Rebecca Dallet Advances to General Election

After decisive primary, Dallet will take on right-wing extremist Michael Screnock

MILWAUKEE, WI – Judge Rebecca Dallet advanced to the general election in the race for Wisconsin Supreme Court after a decisive primary election today and is set up as the front-runner for the April general election.

“I am so grateful to the voters of Wisconsin for their support and trust today,” said Judge Dallet. “The people of Wisconsin demonstrated tonight that we want a Supreme Court Justice who will stand up for our values, fight against special interest influence in our courts, uphold the law and the Constitution, and protect our civil and human rights. I look forward to a spirited debate over the next six weeks.”

“There’s a mainstream candidate, Judge Rebecca Dallet, who proved that she can win with voters in each corner of the state, including urban and suburban and rural, young and old, men and women, uniting people of different faiths and backgrounds,” said Jessica Lovejoy, Dallet’s campaign manager. “And then there’s an extremist candidate who relies on special interests and dark money, Michael Screnock. This race offers voters a clear choice and Judge Dallet is best positioned to win in April.”

Judge Dallet launched her campaign in June and has spent nine months criss-crossing the state and building a strong base of support. She enters the general election with endorsements from more than 200 judges and 150 elected officials in every corner of Wisconsin. Her campaign has more than $100,000 in the bank and is positioned to earn significant new endorsements in the coming days.

Elected in 2008 and re-elected in 2014, Judge Rebecca Dallet currently serves on the Milwaukee County Circuit Court. She has spent the past 23 years working in Wisconsin courtrooms – first as a prosecutor and now as judge presiding over almost 12,000 cases and more than 230 jury trials in a wide range of areas from domestic violence and misdemeanor court, to homicide and drug court, and civil and small claims court.

Judge Dallet is running to protect our Wisconsin values under the Constitution and state statute, ensuring equal protection under the law, during a time when our most basic rights are under attack. She lives in Whitefish Bay with her husband, Brad, and their three teenage daughters.
