[Madison, WI] – Justice Daniel Kelly’s campaign on Tuesday announced that it has collected nomination signatures from nearly 8,000 Wisconsinites – 4 times the 2,000 needed to get on the ballot. This collection of signatures from all across Wisconsin demonstrates Justice Kelly’s massive grassroots support, and shows that individuals from every corner of our state are passionate about upholding the constitution and preserving the rule of law on Wisconsin’s Supreme Court.
“I continue to be overwhelmed by the incredible generosity and backing I’ve received from supporters all across the state,” Justice Kelly said. “I want to extend a sincere thank you to the hundreds of people who spent their nights and weekends collecting signatures for our campaign. The work of our army of grassroots volunteers and supporters is what will lead us to victory in April.”
After a lifetime of practicing law in Wisconsin, Justice Daniel Kelly was appointed to the Supreme Court in 2016 following the retirement of Justice David Prosser. Justice Kelly graduated from Carroll College and Regent University School of Law, where he was the founding editor-in-chief of the law review. He started his legal career as a law clerk for the late Judge Ralph Adam Fine of the Wisconsin Court of Appeals. Kelly then spent two decades representing clients on a wide variety of legal issues, including the Wisconsin Supreme Court and U.S. Supreme Court. Kelly developed a specialty working on complex cases that protect our constitutional rights.
