Rep. Barca Statement on Governor Walker’s Supreme Court Appointment
“The Governor making this appointment so close to the election does not serve the public well...”
MADISON – Assembly Democratic Leader Peter Barca (D-Kenosha) released the following statement today in response to Governor Walker appointing State Appeals Court Judge Rebecca Bradley to the state Supreme Court:
“It is no surprise that Governor Walker appointed the handpicked conservative candidate for Supreme Court. The governor’s actions are entirely consistent with Republican efforts to ensure the continued protection of corporate and special interests over the economic security of Wisconsin citizens.
“The Governor making this appointment so close to the election does not serve the public well but is in line with Republicans’ continued right-wing special interest stranglehold on our state. However, I question why a judicial candidate would want to be so closely linked to a governor with a 37 percent approval rating.”

"Attorney General Brad Schimel is fighting for his party, not democracy."
"We should not be spending another cent defending unconstitutional legislative maps."
"Between the GOP leadership in the legislature and the governor, this week has delivered a double whammy for Wisconsin workers."
"It’s ironic that the Republicans are seemingly using the same lack of transparency that led to our state having one of the worst cases of gerrymandering in history"
“The GOP has let the taxpayers of Wisconsin down.”
