Candidates for spring election coming into focus

MADISON (WKOW) – Candidates are starting to circulate petitions to get on the ballot for two statewide elections in April.

A Wisconsin Supreme court justice and the secretary of the Department of Public Instruction will be elected April 2.  Both races are nonpartisan.

The two incumbents, Justice Patience Roggensack and DPI Secretary Tony Evers, have announced they are seeking re-election.

In the Supreme Court race, lemon law attorney Vince Megna is running against Roggensack.  Two others that are considering running are Dane County Circuit Judge Maryann Sumi and Marquette University law school professor Ed Fallone.

Republican state Sen. Don Pridemore said he will announce on Monday whether he will run against Evers.

Nomination papers are due January 2.
