March 16, 2023

Reframing judicial elections — not “who should we elect,” but “why should we elect them at all?”

The nation is watching Wisconsin as a state Supreme Court race with major implications for democratic outcomes—at both state and national levels—becomes an all-out spending war on behalf of the liberal and conservative candidates.
