MADISON, Wis. - Republican Gov. Scott Walker is praising the work of Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Patience Roggensack, but stopping short of saying whether he will endorse her as she seeks re-election.
Walker said in an interview Wednesday with The Associated Press that it may not make sense to endorse anyone in the officially nonpartisan race for Supreme Court because they won't carry much weight with voters.
Roggensack frequently sides with the four-justice conservative majority on the court. Walker said she has a clear record of upholding the law and not making the law through court rulings.
Roggensack is being challenged by Milwaukee lemon law attorney Vince Megna and Marquette University law professor Ed Fallone.
The primary is Feb. 19 and the general election is April 2.
