Partisan Approach to a Non-Partisan Race

Posted: Updated:

From the start, the two candidates for Wisconsin Supreme Court were not shy about providing political points of view.  During the campaign, we spoke with UW-La Crosse political analyst Tim Dale about that approach taken by Judge Michael Skrenock and Judge Rebecca Dallet.

We asked him about the effect of the partisan approach for a race that is non-partisan.  Dale told us, it's happened before and he says it happens, in part, because when there's no partisanship voters have a hard time distinguishing candidates.  It's difficult to have true, non-partisan races he says.  Especially when there are partisan issues making their way through the courts.
