Pro-Life Wisconsin PAC Endorses Justice Daniel Kelly for Wisconsin Supreme Court
January 15, 2020
Brookfield – The Pro-Life Wisconsin Victory Fund political action committee (PAC) has endorsed Justice Daniel Kelly’s candidacy for Wisconsin Supreme Court. Appointed by former Governor Walker to the Wisconsin Supreme Court in 2016, Justice Kelly is now seeking election to a ten-year term.
“Justice Kelly describes his judicial philosophy as ‘textual originalism,’ or a reading of our federal and state constitutions that strictly adheres to their text and historical meaning,” said Matt Sande, Victory Fund PAC Director. “As a judicial conservative, Justice Kelly will rule impartially by interpreting and applying the law as actually written – not according to his own policy preferences. Unlike his opponents, he will not reimagine our constitutions for modern times. He will not legislate from the bench,” said Sande.
Justice Kelly graduated from Carroll College (now University) and Regent University School of Law, beginning his legal career as a law clerk for former Wisconsin Court of Appeals Judge Ralph Adam Fine. He went on to practice law in the private sector for twenty years, focusing on the protection of constitutional rights. Justice Kelly is currently a member of the Carroll University President’s Advisory Council and resides in North Prairie with his wife Elisa and five children.
“Justice Kelly’s humility, intelligence, compassion and commitment to the rule of law have served Wisconsin well,” said Sande. “His belief in the dignity of the human person makes him the only choice for pro-life voters. We are proud to endorse him.”
Justice Kelly will compete in the Spring primary election on Tuesday, February 18. The Victory Fund PAC is urging Wisconsinites to get out to the polls on this critical election date and vote for Justice Daniel Kelly. The top two vote-getting candidates will advance to the general election to be held on Tuesday, April 7.
