Supreme Court candidates debate


MADISON (WKOW) -- The candidates running for the Wisconsin Supreme Court debated Friday night in Madison.

Incumbent justice David Prosser and challenger Assistant Attorney General JoAnne Kloppenburg answered questions from voters at Wisconsin Public Television.

One wanted to know the candidates' views on how politics influence the high court.

"Partisanship and politics don't belong on the court. People tell me they're worried that Justice Prosser is too much of a partisan on the court," said JoAnne Kloppenburg, Supreme Court Candidate.

"JoAnne cannot point to individual decisions that show I've been partisan. Instead, she's trying to hide her own extreme views," said David Prosser, Supreme Court Candidate.

This was the third debate this week for the supreme court candidates.

The election is April 5th.
