EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) -- Wisconsin State Supreme Court candidate Judge Joanne Kloppenburg was in the Chippewa Valley today, and during her trip, she stopped by WEAU 13 News to talk about her campaign.

Kloppenburg said the race is about the future of the court and how it should serve people in Wisconsin.

She says she has a proven track record of representing people in courts throughout the state, and is running to maintain the independence and integrity of the court.

"The choice is clear. It's between Governor Walker's choice for the Supreme Court, he appointed Rebecca Bradley three times to three judgeships in three years, this last appointment was a political appointment. Rebecca Bradley is clearly Governor Walker's choice, and I am running to be the choice of the people of Wisconsin."

We reached out to Justice Rebecca Bradley's campaign about these statements. They sent us the following statement.

"Justice Bradley looks forward to a robust discussion with all of the candidates, focusing on the rule of law and role of the judiciary, while she campaigns to retain her seat."

Attorney Claude Covelli plans to campaign in Eau Claire tomorrow.
