A liberal judge has won the race for the Wisconsin Supreme Court, which has given liberals control over the court for the first time in 50 years. Janet Protasiewicz won the highly consequential contest, defeating conservative Daniel Kelly by an 11-point margin. The change in the court's composition could result in the reversal of the state's abortion ban and the end of the use of gerrymandered legislative maps. It also has significant implications for the 2024 presidential election, as Wisconsin is a battleground state that was closely decided in 2016 and 2020, and the State Supreme Court may play a role in ensuring that the candidate who receives the most votes actually gets the state’s ten electoral votes. The defeated conservative, Daniel Kelly, gave a bitter concession speech, in which he criticized his opponent and called her campaign “deeply deceitful, dishonorable, and despicable.” This victory, along with the win in Chicago, should be considered a huge step forward for the progressive movement in the United States.
