MADISON – Judge Jill Karofsky, candidate for Wisconsin Supreme Court, announced today the endorsement of Women Lead, a grassroots organization which aims to support and promote strong women candidates running for office in Wisconsin.
“Endorsing Judge Karofsky was an easy decision,” said Patti Keating Kahn, a business owner in Milwaukee and active member of Women Lead. “Jill has the depth of experience and commitment to our values that we look for in a candidate.”
“Judge Karofsky has the tenacity and integrity to win this race, and be an excellent Supreme Court Justice,” said former State Rep. Barbara Notestein, also an active member of Women Lead. “We look forward to supporting her race in the months to come.”
“I am honored to receive the endorsement of Women Lead,” said Judge Karofsky. “Women Lead does excellent work to build a bench of strong women candidates, and I am proud to accept their endorsement for Supreme Court Justice.”
Judge Karofsky currently serves as a criminal court judge in Dane County, and has also announced the public support of Justice Rebecca Dallet and former Governor Jim Doyle. She has earned the bipartisan support of judges, sheriffs, DAs, local elected officials, and community leaders across Wisconsin.
