“I’m endorsing Tim Burns for Wisconsin Supreme Court, because I trust Tim will protect our rights, not take them away. Recently, our state’s Supreme Court has been protecting high-dollar special interests instead of our traditional Wisconsin values. I trust Tim to protect our right to vote, our right to ask for a raise collectively and the right for every woman to determine her most intimate healthcare decisions without government interference. I am honored to support and vote for Tim knowing he is the very best person to serve on Wisconsin’s Supreme Court.”
