Wisconsin Supreme Court candidates clash

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - The three candidates for Wisconsin Supreme Court are attacking each other's positions at a debate.

Madison attorney Tim Burns attacked Federalist Society members in his opening statement at Monday's debate in Milwaukee. Burns says that "you weakened our democracy to the point that we elected a perverse show-dog named (President Donald) Trump to lead our great nation."

The Wisconsin State Journal reports that Milwaukee County Circuit Judge Rebecca Dallet and Burns often clashed while Sauk County Circuit Judge Michael Screnock looked on.

Dallet says the goal is to improve the Supreme Court but Burns has shown he can't do that.

Screnock says he found his opponents' political speech "deeply troubling" and promised his election would help keep the court from returning to liberal control.
