Milwaukee County Judge Rebecca Dallet will win the race of state Supreme Court, The Associated Press is projecting.

She becomes the first candidate backed by liberals to win an open Supreme Court seat since 1995. When she takes her seat in August, it will shift the court to a 4-3 conservative majority.

With 41 percent of the vote in statewide, Dallet was at 56.5 percent, compared to 43.5 percent for Sauk County Judge Michael Screnock.

Meanwhile, the “no” vote on the state treasurer referendum was at 61.6 percent. Those who wanted to eliminate the office were at 38.5 percent.
