Doyle, Barton come out on top in race for La Crosse Co. Judge

Candidates beat out Tlustosch

The race for La Crosse County Circuit Court Judge is now down to two candidates.

Gloria Doyle and Brian Barton grabbed the top two nominations in Tuesday’s primary election. Doyle is the county’s Family Court Commissioner, while Barton is a criminal defense attorney in the area. They beat out Candice Tlustosch to be on the ballot in April’s general election.

Tlustosch was appointed as interim Circuit Court Judge by Governor Scott Walker after Judge Dave Pasell retired in November.

The general election is April 7.
