Is she running for Supreme Court Justice or Wisconsin Democratic Party Chair? Hard to tell.
MADISON – Wisconsin Supreme Court candidate Rebecca Dallet told donors in California this week that San Francisco values are Wisconsin values and spoke of the need to defeat Republicans in 2018, according to leaked audio of the event.
“San Francisco, like, this is awesome, the people,” Dallet told the crowd, according to audio circulated by the Wisconsin Republican Party.
“I know that your values are our Wisconsin values that we’ve lost along the way.”
Dallet, a Milwaukee County judge, is running against Sauk County Circuit Judge Michael Screnock in the April 3 election. The winner will replace Justice Michael Gableman, who is part of the high court’s conservative 5-2 majority.
Dallet also talked about the opportunity to defeat Wisconsin’s top two Republicans, Gov. Scott Walker and Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan of Janesville.
“Our governor is potentially someone we can unseat,” Dallet said.
