Bradley beats Daley for 3rd term on Wisconsin Supreme Court
Justice Ann Walsh Bradley has been re-elected to the Wisconsin Supreme Court.
Bradley defeated Rock County Circuit Judge James Daley on Tuesday to win her third 10-year term on the court. Bradley was first elected to the Wisconsin Supreme Court in 1995.
The race is officially nonpartisan, but Bradley drew support from liberals while Daley actively courted conservatives and accepted donations from the Republican Party in his failed attempt to knock off Bradley.
She is viewed as one of two liberal justices on the Supreme Court, which has a 4-2 conservative majority.
Daley criticized Bradley for dissenting from recent Supreme Court rulings upholding the voter identification law and Gov. Scott Walker's restrictions on public employee unions.
Bradley says Daley tried to politicize the race.
