MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Gov. Scott Walker has picked two appeals court judges and an attorney as finalists for an appointment to the Wisconsin Supreme Court.

Walker on Wednesday announced the finalists, taken from a list of five semifinalists.

The finalists are 2nd District Appeals Court Judge Mark Gundrum, 3rd District Appeals Court Judge Thomas Hruz and attorney Dan Kelly. Gundrum is a former Republican state lawmaker who served with Walker in the Assembly.

Walker named Hruz to the appeals court in 2014.

Kelly is an attorney who defended Republicans' 2011 redistricting plan.

Two other semifinalists who did not make Walker's final list were Jefferson County Circuit Judge Randy Koschnick and Marinette County Circuit Judge James Morrison.

Whoever Walker selects will replace Justice David Prosser, who is retiring July 31.
