Wisconsin Supreme Court candidates differ over 'truly progressive' approaches

MADISON - Two candidates for state Supreme Court clashed Friday over their approaches, with one championing liberal ideals and the other arguing judges must steer clear of political issues so they can remain impartial. 

"In the past century, it was only when progressives worked together that we’ve been able to tame the power of concentrated wealth and big business," Madison attorney Tim Burns said at a candidate forum. 

He spoke positively of the Affordable Care Act, emphasized the importance of voting rights and criticized Act 10, which all but ended collective bargaining for public workers in Wisconsin.
