Wisconsin Supreme Court candidates hold first debate

By  | 

MADISON, Wis. (AP) Wisconsin Supreme Court candidates Rebecca Dallet and Michael Screnock are clashing in their first debate over whether they will uphold the rule of law or advocate for special interests.

Dallet and Screnock debated Friday in Milwaukee ahead of the April 3 election.

Screnock is a Sauk County judge backed by conservatives and says he's the only candidate who is dedicated to upholding the rule of law. He says that Dallet, who is backed by liberals, will be beholden to unions and others who support her. He says she's not committed to the rule of law.

Dallet says that because the state chamber of commerce and Republican Party have given nearly $700,000 to help him he will be beholden to them. Dallet says her experience as a Milwaukee County judge as a decade shows her dedication to the rule of law.
