MILWAUKEE — Judge Jill Karofsky, candidate for Wisconsin Supreme Court, announced today the endorsement of more than 60 current and former elected officials and other leaders from across Wisconsin, including two former Governors, Tony Earl and Martin Schreiber.
“Judge Jill Karofsky is dedicated to the rule of law, and has the experience and values we need for our next Supreme Court Justice,” said Governor Martin Schreiber. “She understands the law, she understands Wisconsin, and she will do right by us all on the Wisconsin Supreme Court. I’m proud to support a candidate with a proven record like Judge Karofsky.”
“Judge Karofsky is dedicated to following the law and ensuring fair outcomes for all litigants,” said Ada Deer, a longtime Native American leader in Wisconsin, who led the U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs as an Assistant Secretary at the Department of the Interior. “I have no doubt she will serve faithfully and independently on the Wisconsin Supreme Court. Jill Karofsky has my full support.”
“Judge Karofsky has been an advocate for victims for her entire career,” said Trevor Jung, Racine Alderman. “Her dedication to the law and the rights of all residents of Wisconsin is unquestioned. I look forward to seeing her as a Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice.”
Judge Karofsky currently serves as a circuit court judge in Dane County, and also has the public support of Justice Rebecca Dallet, Governor Jim Doyle, and dozens of judges, law enforcement leaders, and legislators.
