Pat Roggensack elected to Wis State Supreme Court


MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Pat Roggensack has won a second 10-year term.

Roggensack beat Marquette University law professor Ed Fallone in Tuesday's election.

Roggensack is generally viewed as part of a four-justice conservative majority on the state's highest court. While the race was officially nonpartisan, Roggensack had support from Republicans.

Fallone was backed by unions and Democrats. He argued that Roggensack is part of a dysfunctional court that has opened itself up to the influence of special interests.

But Roggensack campaigned hard on her 17 years' experience as a judge, noting Fallone had no such experience. She also raised more money than Fallone and dominated television advertising.
