Supreme Court candidates spar over partisan influences
MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The two candidates for Wisconsin Supreme Court continue to spar over partisan influences in the race for a 10-year term on the state's highest court.
Justice Ann Walsh Bradley and Rock County Circuit Judge met Tuesday at a candidate forum hosted by the Dane County Bar Association.
The race is officially nonpartisan, but Daley has accepted a $7,000 in-kind contribution from the Wisconsin Republican Party and is speaking at GOP events around the state. Bradley says she "strongly believes" that political parties should stay out of judicial races.
Daley says he's not going to apologize for accepting a legal donation from the GOP. He says he speaks with people who have a similar conservative philosophy.
