Roggensack First to File in Supreme Court Race
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.
