MADISON, Wis. – Americans for Prosperity-Wisconsin (AFP-WI) on Wednesday congratulated Judge Brian Hagedorn on his election to the Wisconsin Supreme Court following Judge Lisa Neubauer’s concession. The group also applauded the incredible effort of its grassroots teams, who had mobilized across the state to have conversations with voters and urge them to vote for Judge Brian Hagedorn. AFP-WI activists made 750,000 voter contacts through door knocking, phone banking, hand-written postcards, and texts.

AFP-WI State Director Eric Bott issued the following statement:

“Congratulations to Judge Brian Hagedorn on his election to the Wisconsin Supreme Court. We backed Judge Hagedorn because we know he will bring a restrained philosophy to the bench – interpreting the laws as they are written, not making them. We applaud our activists for their incredible effort over the last several weeks and remain committed to educating Wisconsinites on the importance of a judiciary that decides cases based on the rule of law and the Constitution, not partisan politics.”

AFP-WI activists made 750,000 voter contacts throughout the effort. The grassroots group also sent 1.5 million pieces of targeted mail in support of Hagedorn. The mail pieces can be viewed here: mail #1mail #2mail #3mail #4.
