Bradley, Kloppenburg will find out who gets high court seat

Rebecca Bradley and JoAnne Kloppenburg will soon find out which of them will get a 10-year term on the Wisconsin Supreme Court.

Voters on Tuesday will pick which candidate should fill the seat of Justice Patrick Crooks, who died in his chambers in September. Republican Gov. Scott Walker appointed Bradley to fill the seat in December, giving her the advantage of incumbency going into the election.

But liberal group One Wisconsin Now revealed writings by Bradley as a college student in 1992 in which she bashed gay people and feminism and likened abortion to the Holocaust. The writings dominated headlines for a week, but she still had a slight lead in the last statewide poll in the race.

Polls open at 7 a.m. and close at 8 p.m.
