One week left for schools superintendent, justice candidates to file papers

Posted:

MADISON (WKOW) -- Next week is the deadline for state school superintendent or Supreme Court candidates to submit nomination papers to run in the election.

State Department of Public Instruction Superintendent Tony Evers and Supreme Court Justice Patience Roggensack are both up for re-election this spring.

Candidates must turn in nomination papers with at least 2,000 valid signatures to the state Government Accountability Board by the end of business Wednesday, January 2 to get on the ballot for either position.

Lemon law attorney Vince Megna and Marquette University law professor Ed Fallone have registered with the board to challenge Roggensack. State Representative Don Pridemore of Hartford has registered to take on Evers.

The board has scheduled a primary for February 19, if one is needed. The general election is set for April 2.
