MADISON, Wis. (AP) - The field is nearly set for the Feb. 20 primary for an open seat in the Wisconsin Supreme Court.
Three candidates who have been campaigning for months were expected to qualify for the ballot by Tuesday's filing deadline. Milwaukee County Circuit Judge Rebecca Dallet, Sauk County Circuit Judge Michael Screnock and Madison attorney Tim Burns are running.
The two highest vote-getters in the primary will advance to the April 3 general election.
Dallet and Screnock filed their nomination papers on Friday and Burns was expected to file by Tuesday's deadline.
They are running to replace Justice Michael Gableman who decided against seeking re-election. He is part of a 5-2 conservative majority on the court.
Screnock has conservative backing while Dallet and Burns are both trying to appeal to more liberal voters.
