In his first TV ad of the campaign, Supreme Court Justice Daniel Kelly’s daughter calls him “an amazing dad and a great judge.”
Kelly’s campaign said it’s putting over $150,000 behind the spot. It will run on broadcast in the Milwaukee, Wausau and Green Bay markets. It also will run on cable in Madison, La Crosse, Minneapolis and Duluth.
In the spot, the justice’s daughter, Anna, says Kelly is a great judge who’s “super focused about it” and loves the Constitution. The ad shows Kelly reading a booking saying “statutes, fascinating” and looking at a copy of the U.S. Constitution as he says “perfection.”
Anna later says Kelly “issues strong opinions.”
“America’s great, da Bears stink, no judge should rewrite the law,” Kelly says.
The ad is the first from any of the three campaigns ahead of the Feb. 18 primary, when Kelly, Dane County Judge Jill Karofsky and Marquette University Law Prof. Ed Fallone square off. The top two vote-getters will advance to the April 7 spring election.
