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.”

  1. Alene Bidwell says:

    Walker no longer cares about the people (actually he only pretends to care). He is going to push his far right-wing agenda down Wisconsin’s throat for the next three years. Get used to it. He no longer cares about appealing to the people. He only cares about his loyal constituents and making sure that his agenda is carried out. Everyone should hang on because we are in for a very long and bumpy ride.
