Oh, this was a problematic one: Republican Rebecca Bradley versus Democrat JoAnne Kloppenburg for the Wisconsin Supreme Court. Sitting WI Supreme Court Justice Bradley was an appointee by Governor Scott Walker*, and Court of Appeals Justice Kloppenburg has been chasing a seat on the WI Supreme Court since 2011. The exit polls argued that Kloppenburg would win… and it turns out that the exit polls were too generous. Decision Desk has called the race for Bradley.
This one was a nail-biter, folks – but all’s well that ends well. What makes this particularly fun is that Hillary Clinton – who lost Wisconsin tonight, by the way – went after Bradley pretty hard in a speech a couple of days later. Didn’t seem to help Kloppenburg much…
*Who by the way seems rather secure on his Throne of Skulls right now.
