Soros Money Floods Into Wisconsin Supreme Court Race To Flip Bench Liberal

  • A political committee backed by billionaire George Soros is spending millions of dollars to defeat the conservative candidate for the Wisconsin Supreme Court, in hopes of placing Judge Janet Protasiewicz on the bench and flipping the court majority to the liberal side.
  • A Better Wisconsin Together Political Fund has spent more than $4 million so far on internet and TV ads focused on the Supreme Court election, first opposing conservative candidate Judge Jennifer Dorow in the primary, then against Daniel Kelly in the general election. Better Wisconsin’s spending helped ensure that Protasiewicz, who has the support of the national Democratic Party, is competing against an archconservative abortion opponent who may be unpopular with suburban and female voters.
