Roggensack, Fallone Win Primary

Justice Pat Roggensack pulverized her challengers in the primary election for Wisconsin Supreme Court.

From the Associated Press, via 620 WTMJ:

Marquette University law professor Ed Fallone will face Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Pat Roggensack in the April election.

Fallone finished second in Tuesday's Supreme Court primary, behind Roggensack but well ahead of challenger Vince Megna. In unofficial returns, Roggensack took 60 percent of the vote to Fallone's 33 percent. Megna was far back in single digits.

...Democratic lawmakers and unions are supporting Fallone in the nonpartisan race. Roggensack has the backing of more than 150 county sheriffs and judges.
Results, from FOX 6 News:

Pat Roggensack (I) - 229,552 - 64%

Joe Fallone - 106,638 - 30%

Vince Megna - 22,556 - 6%
Roggensack's challengers did not do well. Obviously, Fallone has the backing of the Leftists, but they failed to produce an impressive showing.

Maybe it was too cold and windy yesterday for the Leftists to vote.

Maybe Roggensack's supporters are just more enthusiastic. She's clearly a tremendous candidate.

Maybe the union/Democrat machine isn't firing on all cylinders yet.

Maybe the fact that the utterly unqualified Fallone has NO judicial experience accounts for the Roggensack landslide.
