Roggensack First to File in Supreme Court Race

Sig­na­tures are due on Jan­u­ary 2, 2013 at 5 PM at the offices of the Gov­ern­ment Account­abil­ity Board.

Wis­con­sin Supreme Court Jus­tice Pat Roggen­sack plans to sub­mit the required sig­na­tures to get her name on the bal­lot for re-election next year.

Roggen­sack planned to deliver 4,000 sig­na­tures on Fri­day to the state elec­tions board office. It takes at least 2,000 to get on the bal­lot for the April 2 election.

Two oth­ers have announced they intend to chal­lenge Roggen­sack but they have not yet turned in their nom­i­na­tion papers. The sig­na­tures are due Wednesday.

Chal­leng­ing Roggen­sack are Mar­quette Uni­ver­sity law pro­fes­sor Ed Fal­lone and Mil­wau­kee lemon law attor­ney Vince Megna.

Accord­ing to other media reports Megna has said he’s about 300 sig­na­tures shy of mak­ing the bal­lot with Fal­lone — who is now the assumed lib­eral hope with Dane Co. Judge Mary Ann Sumi likely not run­ning — not announc­ing how many sig­na­tures he’s gathered.

Next Wednes­day could be an inter­est­ing one for C-Level legal candidates.
