MILWAUKEE — Today, many current and former elected officials in Wisconsin endorsed Wisconsin Supreme Court candidate Rebecca Dallet. Former Lt. Governor Barbara Lawton, former Congressman Dave Obey, State Senator Jennifer Shilling, State Representative Gordon Hintz, Outagamie County Executive Tom Nelson, Appeals Court Judge JoAnne Kloppenburg, and former Dane County Executive Kathleen Falk announce their support for Judge Rebecca Dallet for Supreme Court.

“I am confident that Judge Rebecca Dallet will be a fair arbiter of the law because I know she shares our Wisconsin values,” said former Lt. Governor Barbara Lawton. “With so many of our basic rights under attack, I am confident that Judge Dallet’s quarter-century in Wisconsin courtrooms gives her the experience necessary to reject special interest influences and stand up for working families.”

Judge Rebecca Dallet reacted, “I’m flattered to receive the endorsement of so many that I admire. I am running to uphold the constitution and the law, to protect Wisconsin values, and to bring integrity back to Wisconsin’s Supreme Court. The endorsement of these Wisconsin leaders gives this campaign the momentum to win on April 3rd.”

Elected in 2008 and re-elected in 2014, Judge Rebecca Dallet currently serves on the Milwaukee County Circuit Court. She has spent the past 23 years working in Wisconsin courtrooms – first as a prosecutor and now as judge presiding over more than 10,000 cases and more than 230 jury trials in a wide range of areas from domestic violence and misdemeanor court, to homicide and drug court, and civil and small claims court. Judge Dallet is running to protect our Wisconsin values during a time when our most basic rights are under attack. She lives in Whitefish Bay with her husband, Brad, and their three teenage daughters.
