Burns Takes Unusual Approach in Wisconsin Supreme Court Race

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — One of the three candidates for Wisconsin Supreme Court is taking a decidedly different approach to the race, embracing his partisan Democratic background and commenting on political issues that judicial candidates typically run away from.

Madison attorney Tim Burns is hoping is unusual strategy, which he simply calls "straight-out candor," will help differentiate him in the Feb. 20 primary. He faces conservative Sauk County Circuit Judge Michael Screnock and Milwaukee County Circuit Judge Rebecca Dallet.
