LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - A candidate for Wisconsin's Supreme Court says he is trying to bring equality for all citizens back into the court.
Madison attorney Tim Burns stopped in La Crosse Monday afternoon, saying the current state Supreme Court has become too right-leaning. He says his experience would help bring non-partisan judgements back into a biased system.
"That reflects the rule of law, that protects individual rights, that protects the rights all citizens and not just the top one percent, not just the citizens of a particular race, but all citizens,” said Burns.
Burns is one of three candidates looking to fill the seat Justice Michael Gableman is leaving.
Milwaukee County Circuit Judge Rebecca Dallet and Sauk County Circuit Judge Michael Screnock are also campaigning for the seat.
