Conservative Justice Brian Hagedorn described Justice Kelly in this tweet from earlier this year, “Justice Kelly is a man of faith, family, and integrity. And he understands that the judiciary should be the least dangerous branch because it faithfully applies the law as written.”
Kelly is currently set to face two candidates openly supported by liberals: Ed Fallone, a Marquette Law School professor, and Dane County Judge Jill Karofsky. The primary for this race will be Tuesday, February 18, 2020. The general election falls on the same date as the contested Democratic presidential primary, Tuesday, April 7, 2020, assuring increased turnout among liberal voters.
A 2020 Kelly victory would maintain the court’s 5-2 conservative majority. It is critical voters save the date and plan to rally others to the polls on April 7.
