Hagedorn wins WI Supreme Court Race

April 3, 2019 – Madison, WI – Yesterday, Spring Election Day in Wisconsin, was an historic day. Despite all attempts to discredit him for his Christian faith, Judge Brian Hagedorn garnered a hard-won and narrow victory in the race to be the next Wisconsin Supreme Court justice.

Wisconsin Family Action extends a hearty congratulations and thanks to Brian and his family for their hard work and steadfast commitment to staying the course despite the unjust attacks on their personal lives and their religious beliefs. We believe Justice-elect Hagedorn will serve us well. We also congratulate Justice-elect Hagedorn’s campaign for all they did to take this race across the finish line.

Wisconsin Family Action recognizes that victories like Brian’s don’t happen without the labor, financial support, time commitment and prayer of supporters like you and your family. Our partnership and excellent teamwork really do make a difference on election day whether the race is local, statewide or even nationwide. So we thank everyone who had anything to do with this victory, including other groups such as Americans for Prosperity, and especially you the voters!

WI Supreme Court candidate Neubauer endorsed by Planned Parenthood

From the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:


Supreme Court candidate Lisa Neubauer’s family ties to Planned Parenthoodappear to be paying off.   

Neubauer’s parents were active in the Minnesota chapter of the organization, with her mother serving two terms as board chairwoman. Neubauer’s daughter, state Rep. Greta Neubauer, lists herself as a member of the abortion rights group

Neubauer’s campaign said the appellate judge volunteered for Planned Parenthood in the 1990s but is uncertain whether she donated to the group. She hasn’t given to politicians or political groups since taking her seat on the bench a decade ago.

The judge was the lone dissenter in a 2016 appeals court case in which she wrote a 17-page opinion favoring Planned Parenthood.

Now Planned Parenthood Advocates of Wisconsin — the political arm of the state chapter — has endorsed Neubauer and this week began spending $100,000 on digital ads supporting her.

Vote on Tuesday, February 19 – Wisconsin Spring Primary Election

Tuesday, February 19, is Wisconsin’s spring nonpartisan primary election when the ballots are determined for the April 2 general election. While there is no statewide race on the ballot today, many communities will have primaries for mayors, city council, village and town boards, school boards, or local and appellate judges. Wisconsin Family Council recommends visiting myvote.wi.org to see if you have a primary race you need to vote in today, or you can also call WFC at 888-378-7395 for help. The polls are open statewide from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

It’s far better to check before the polls close now to see if you have a primary election on February 19 rather than to find out after the fact. As Christian citizens let’s do our part to be knowledgeable, responsible, and prayerful voters and encourage others to join us. Here’s the reality: Every election has consequences, and every vote in every election matters.

One Wisconsin Now Owes Judge Hagedorn Public Apology for Religious Bias

One Wisconsin Now Owes Judge Hagedorn Public Apology for Religious Bias
Imposing religious test as qualification for public service violates U.S. Constitution

MADISON, WI – In an attempt to discredit Brian Hagedorn, candidate for the Wisconsin Supreme Court, One Wisconsin Now yesterday declared Hagedorn “unfit to hold public office” because he co-founded a Christian school that seeks to follow orthodox Christian beliefs and standards.

“One Wisconsin Now owes Judge Hagedorn an apology for smearing his character and discriminating against him based on his religion,” said Julaine Appling, president of Wisconsin Family Action. “The U.S. Constitution simply doesn’t allow a religious litmus test for public office-holders and blacklisting candidates for public office because of their religious beliefs and associations is profoundly intolerant.

“Imposing a litmus test on individuals running for public office based on their faith is not only unconstitutional, it’s un-American.  One Wisconsin Now appears to have taken a page from the playbook of those who have bullied and badgered other judicial candidates in recent months for their religious beliefs, and, most recently, Second Lady Karen Pence for teaching at a Christian school that similarly states its religious beliefs and establishes codes of conduct for employees and students. One Wisconsin Now certainly has a right to hold its own beliefs, but smearing a candidate with different beliefs is the very essence of intolerance. Such attempts should concern all Wisconsinites.”

One Wisconsin Now, bolstered by other activists, asserts that because the Christian school Hagedorn helped to found, and now serves as a board member, holds to an orthodox Christian teaching regarding marriage, Hagedorn is incapable of “fairly and impartially” judging cases.

“A judge’s job is to interpret the law as written, not to legislate or impose personal policy preferences from the bench. Judge Hagedorn should be vetted and reviewed based on his temperament and character as a judge—not on his personal religious beliefs, practices, or associations. For millennia, people of all the Abrahamic faiths and no faith at all have held the belief that marriage is between a man and a woman. Holding that belief, or being associated with institutions that hold that belief, doesn’t mean a judge can’t fairly and impartially interpret and apply the law,” Appling continued. “These tired tactics to discredit judicial candidates because of their faith’s beliefs have failed before, and they will fail again.”

Article VI of the U.S. Constitution clearly states that “no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.”

Election Wrap-up: Being part of the solution in Wisconsin

If you voted yesterday, you are deserving of thanks. You are part of the solution, not part of the problem. If you took seriously our frequent admonition to use your influence to get at least ten other citizens to join you in voting, you deserve a double thank you. A quick look at the numbers in many of the races here in Wisconsin shows that indeed every vote matters.  If you are a pastor and you distributed our materials or showed our video or from the pulpit you reminded your people to vote, thank you! You have no idea how influential your voice is when it comes to people voting. The historic turnout yesterday indicates get-out-the-vote efforts were pretty successful for all sides in our state. WFA’s  and WFC’s get-out-the-vote efforts, in partnership with you, were definitely part of the reason for the high voter-turnout.

One quick take on the election: it’s becoming harder and harder to overcome the liberal progressive numbers in Madison and Milwaukee. Their votes in these areas for their candidates this past Tuesday were incredibly strong. For conservatives to win statewide elections, the numbers voting for conservative candidates outside of these major population centers are going to have to be stronger than they were in this election.

Admittedly, with a Democrat governor and both houses of our state legislature controlled by Republicans, we might see a lot of gridlock. Assembly Republicans enjoy a 63-36 majority (a loss of 1 seat), while Senate Republicans hold a 19-14 majority (a gain of 1 seat). Republicans, in our opinion, need to be aggressive in forwarding a conservative, pro-family, pro-life, pro-liberty agenda and not fall prey to the temptation to just go-along-to-get-along and make deep, principled compromises with a governor who is likely to want a vastly different agenda pushed.

We will keep you posted as we learn more about how this session will start. Both Democrats and Republicans are caucusing today to determine their party and house leadership. Inauguration of the governor will be in early January, followed very shortly thereafter with the beginning of the new legislative session.

For more details on the election results and encouragement for a Christian response, listen to Julaine’s “Home Front” program from yesterday afternoon.

Wisconsin: Vote early because…

Vote Early Because….

Allow us to finish this sentence for you….
Vote early because:

  • you could become ill on Election Day (Tuesday, Nov. 6) and unable to leave your home.
  • an unforeseen emergency could come up.
  • you could forget. (It’s been known to happen.)
  • your work schedule could change and prohibit you from getting to the polls in time.

There are so many more reasons we could give as to why voting early is a smart move such as inclement weather, lack of transportation, etc. The bottom line is we cannot know the future and, well, things do happen that are out of our control.

Candidate Information – State Superintendent of Public Instruction

WISCONSIN SPRING GENERAL ELECTION
TUESDAY, APRIL 4, 2017

The only statewide competitive race on the ballot is for State Superintendent of Public Instruction. Incumbent Tony Evers is being challenged by Lowell Holtz. Here are two candidate comparison charts for that race:

Wisconsin Family Action PAC-Endorsed Candidate Moves on to General Election

Holtz garners second-most votes in Primary for State Superintendent of Public Instruction

Madison, WI – Dr. Lowell Holtz, candidate for State Superintendent of Public Instruction, took the second highest vote total in yesterday’s statewide primary election. Incumbent Tony Evers placed first, with John Humphries placing a distant third. Wisconsin Family Action PAC (WFA PAC) endorsed Dr. Holtz earlier this month.  Evers and Holtz move on to the general election on Tuesday, April 4.

WFA PAC director Julaine Appling said, “We congratulate Dr. Holtz on yesterday’s election. Primary elections are never easy—and spring nonpartisan elections are notoriously difficult. All things considered he put in a solid performance.

“We believe Dr. Holtz is well positioned to go head to head with Tony Evers in the general election.  He provides a stark contrast with Dr. Evers on many issues, including school choice and Common Core. Wisconsin voters who are concerned about these issues as well as wanting to hold public schools accountable while ensuring they are doing an excellent job of educating children should vote for Dr. Holtz in April.

“WFA PAC believes it is time for a real change at the Department of Public Instruction and that Dr. Holtz, with his experience, expertise, and beliefs, is the change we need. We wish Dr. Holtz the very best as he campaigns over the next six weeks and urge Wisconsin voters to plan now to go to polls and vote for him on April 4.”

Wisconsin Family Action PAC Endorses Dr. Lowell Holtz for State Superintendent of Public Instruction

Madison, WI – Today Wisconsin Family Action PAC (WFA PAC) announced it has endorsed Dr. Lowell Holtz, candidate for State Superintendent of Public Instruction.  Julaine Appling, WFA PAC director, made the following statement:

“We are honored to endorse a candidate of the caliber of Dr. Lowell Holtz for this important office. Dr. Holtz’s personal educational preparation and attainment, coupled with his hands-on experience are extremely well suited for this position. But more important to us is his character and his positions on the critical issues surrounding education today.

“Dr. Holtz understands that the State Superintendent of Public Instruction and the Department of Public Instruction don’t need to be adversarial to school choice. He rightly believes parents, not the state, are ultimately responsible for the education of their children; and he is therefore rightly supportive of giving parents more options for fulfilling that responsibility. We’ve not had a State Superintendent of Public Instruction with that mindset for decades. This is the election where that needs to change.

Wisconsin: Your Vote Could Be In Danger – HERE’S WHAT TO DO

protect-your-vote-campaign-slide-no-button-revised

YOUR Vote Could Be IN DANGER

If you thought the November Election was over, think again. Wisconsin is preparing to count your votes all over again starting as early as this Thursday, December 1, at 9 a.m.

WHY?

Because apparently those who lost simply cannot accept the final results of the election. Former Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein has requested a recount in three states, Wisconsin being one of them. Her reason? She does not “trust” our election system. Interestingly, if the 46 electoral votes from these 3 states go to Hillary Clinton rather than Donald Trump, then Trump goes from 306 electoral votes to 260–10 below the required 270–while Clinton goes from 232 to 278, and would therefore be the winner.

Q. What is a “political platform?”

A.  A political platform is a formal set of principal goals which are supported by a political party or individual candidate, in order to appeal to the general public, for the ultimate purpose of garnering the general public’s support and votes about complicated topics or issues.

Q. Why is it important for me to compare the party platforms before I vote?

A. Because each platform is a product that is a reliable statement of what grassroots voters care about.

Clearing the Air on Absentee Voting in Wisconsin

Alert1Last month due to a lawsuit filed by one of Wisconsin’s most liberal organizations, One Wisconsin Now, the state’s rules for early in-person voting changed. The lawsuit alleges the law providing for a 10 day early-in person voting window is discriminatory against minorities, especially those in Milwaukee. The 7th Circuit Court of Appeals agreed, ordering that all 1,855 Wisconsin municipal clerks could decide for themselves when early voting would begin as well as the days and hours the office would be open for such voting. Some municipalities will begin yet this month.

Wisconsin Family Action president Julaine Appling has this to say, “This has made it more difficult for Wisconsin voters to take advantage of early in-person voting. Now instead of knowing that opportunity is 10 business days before any election, citizens must find out that information directly from their municipal clerk. The State Elections Commission will not be compiling that information. We urge all Wisconsin voters to be aware of this change.”

IMPORTANT! According to Wisconsin’s Government Accountability Board, each city, village and town in Wisconsin is responsible for setting the dates and hours of in-person absentee voting for their municipality.  To find the dates and hours for in-person absentee voting where you live,  contact your municipal clerk.

WFA Helps WI Voters Find Information on Candidates

Hard-to-find background information becomes available at one online resource 

As part of an ongoing voter education effort, Wisconsin Family Action (WFA) has announced today that it once again has partnered with iVoterGuide to provide Wisconsin citizens with unbiased, easily accessible background information on candidates running for state and federal office here in Wisconsin. WFA’s goal with this robust voter guide is to serve as an asset and tool for those voters looking for sometimes hard-to-find information on the candidates running for office, such as donations and endorsements from political action committees. In addition, the candidates are rated on a scale of very liberal to very conservative, giving users a general overview of how a panel of their peers believes these candidates would govern if elected.

“We are really excited about the new user-friendly interface of this exceptional online voter information resource. Over the years we have had countless voters from across the state come to us looking for a convenient, one-stop website that fairly presented background information on the candidates that would be appearing on their ballots, and we believe that the 2016 WFA iVoterguide will exceed their expectations,” said Julaine Appling, president of WFA.

The release of the WFA iVoterguide is well timed with in-person early voting having already begun for the Tuesday, August 9th Wisconsin Primary Election.

“With early absentee voting already starting, we believe this resource will be a valuable educational tool for those voters looking to cast a more informed ballot this fall, both in the primary and general elections.” Appling continued.

The Wisconsin iVoterguide can be accessed by visiting wifa.ivoterguide.com.
