The Republican leadership in Madison appealed Governor Evers postponement of Wisconsin’s April 7th Presidential Primary and Spring General Election to the state Supreme Court. And of course the conservative leaning court overruled the governor.
The Wisconsin Supreme Court Monday evening overruled a decision by the state’s governor to postpone their primary election from this week to June, putting the Tuesday election back on just hours after the the governor had tried to push it back.
…the state’s highest court overruled that decision in a 4-2 vote, with the vote breaking down along partisan lines, with Republican judges in the majority. Wisconsin is one of 22 states in the country where judges are elected by popular vote, rather than appointed.
And Justice Dan Kelly kept his word and didn’t participate since he is on the ballot tomorrow. Otherwise the vote would have been 5 – 2.
“I am so frustrated with our entire state leadership right now I can barely stand it,” Carey Danen, De Pere’s city clerk, said before the court ruling. “They don’t realize the stress they’ve put us under with all of this back and forth.”
