This Tuesday, Wisconsin voters will decide whether a liberal or a conservative will sit on the Wisconsin Supreme Court bench for the next ten years. The conservative incumbent in this race is Justice David Prosser. He faces the heavily union-backed Asst. Attorney General JoAnne Kloppenburg.
You couldn’t get away from this race in Wisconsin if you tried. It seems like the unions are airing anti-Prosser ads every commercial break. Tea Party organizations have been able to raise funds to air a few ads in support of Prosser to counter the union ads.
Yesterday, Governor Palin tweeted:
Wisconsin, please remember to vote for Justice Prosser on April 5. Visit his website here: http://www.justiceprosser.com/
The Tea Party Express sent out an e-mail highlighting Governor Palin’s support:
We’re down to just 4 days before the critical election for Wisconsin Supreme Court – an election that will determine whether Gov. Scott Walker and Republican legislators win or if Barack Obama and his union bosses will win.
To further demonstrate how critically important this election is, consider this: Governor Sarah Palin has now gotten involved in the race urging a vote for Conservative Justice David Prosser. Here’s the report from Politico:
FOUR MORE DAYS – PALIN FOR PROSSER: Wisconsin voters go to the polls on Tuesday to cast ballots in a state Supreme Court race and a Milwaukee County executive election that will test the strength of popular opposition to Republican Gov. Scott Walker. The judicial election is especially important because the state Supreme Court is expected to rule on the legality of the Republican-backed measure to limit collective bargaining for public employees. The latest sign that the election has become nationalized came overnight, when @SarahPalinUSA tweeted support for conservative Justice David Prosser: “Wisconsin, please remember to vote for Justice Prosser on April 5.”
We here at the Tea Party Express are one of the few “conservative” groups running ads in this race. With just 4 days left we are giving it everything we’ve got and have already spent over $100,000 in this campaign.
We must spend much more though to reach all of Wisconsin’s voters and we need your help. Please donate to our Wisconsin State PAC – DONATE HERE.
Wisconsin Right to Life is also getting the word out about the false attack ads.
The unions are doing everything they can to make sure Justice Prosser does not get re-elected. This election will have an impact on Wisconsin, and a possible ripple effect on the rest of the nation, for the next ten years. If you live in Wisconsin, please talk to your friends and neighbors and help get out the conservative vote. Next Tuesday, April 5th, vote for Prosser.
