Today's vote will determine the composition of the WI Supreme court for the next ten years, and will affect gerrymandering, voter id laws, women's access to reproductive healthcare, gun laws, and more.
The average turnout for a Supreme Court primary is 8%. It is so important that we don't let 8% turnout determine the next supreme court justice. Please let friends and family know about the election today. Polls close at 8:00 p.m. You will need to bring a photo id. You can find your polling place here.
US Reps Mark Pocan, Dave Obey, Steve Kagen, Our Wisconsin Revolution, WI Working Families Party, and Our Revolution are all supporting Tim Burns , and I am as well. Getting to know Tim on the campaign trail over the past year, I have no doubt that he will stand up for our democracy, that he will stand up for our rights, and that he will stand up to Trump.
Tim is one of America's top 25 lawyers at suing large insurance companies. Over his career, he has been hired by clients in three dozen states and ten foreign countries. He will come to the Supreme Court with a wealth of experience standing up for the American people in our legal system.
As a Justice, Tim will stand up for working families. While Tim's parents were forced out of high school due to poverty, they taught him the importance of hard work, fairness and equal opportunity. Tim believes that fair courts ensure everyone has an equal opportunity to succeed, not just the wealthy and the well-connected. Here is a link to Tim's website.
