With candidate field set, state Supreme Court race ramps up

Burns, a partner at the Perkins Coie firm who specializes in insurance law, has explicitly touted his liberal views, saying he’ll uphold them if elected to the court.

“I’m a progressive,” Burns said in a statement. “I’m not going to apologize for those beliefs, and I’ll be talking about them as I travel Wisconsin these next three months.”

That approach has won him endorsements, including from U.S. Rep. Mark Pocan, D-Black Earth, and Our Wisconsin Revolution, a group that grew out of Bernie Sanders’ 2016 presidential bid.
