Trump Administration Vetting Justice Michael Gableman
Also running for Gableman’s seat are Madison attorney Tim Burns and Milwaukee County Circuit Judge Rebecca Dallet. Both have courted Democrats in the early stages of the race and they reacted strongly to Wednesday's news.
"This is what we've come to expect from Governor Walker," Burns said in a statement. "He cynically abuses his power to rig our democracy and keep the court at his bidding. Voters be damned."
