EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) - The two candidates for Wisconsin Supreme Court stopped in Eau Claire Monday ahead of next week’s spring election.

Janet Protasiewicz and Dan Kelly met and spoke with voters at The Labor Temple on Birch Street. Among the key issues the candidates spoke on were their values, and how the other candidate has attempted to attack them during the race. Protasiewicz says judging the law is her top priority as a justice, while Kelly says personal beliefs are getting in the way of the campaign.

“So the campaign should not be about personal political views because as it turns out, your personal political views have nothing to do with the work of the Court,” Kelly said.

“Despite the fact that I’ve been telling people what my values are in regard to a lot of issues like women’s right to choose and our gerrymandered maps. The bottom line is the decisions that I make will be made based on the law and based on the Constitution,” Protasiewicz said.

The spring election is April 4.
