MADISON -- Two weeks before the statewide election for Wisconsin Supreme Court, former Scott Walker lawyer Brian Hagedorn is finding criticism of his floundering campaign from even his most fervent supporters after weeks of brutal press coverage over his radical, partisan agenda.

Conservative radio host Dan O’Donnell sharply criticized Hagedorn on this morning’s “The Dan O’Donnell show” for his campaign’s many blunders and missteps, worrying aloud that Hagedorn doesn’t understand what’s at stake in this race. Excerpts from the program cast Hagedorn’s campaign apparatus as inept and incapable of getting out the vote, much less responding to supporters’ emails. When asked what his campaign was doing to reach voters, he could only point to the fact that he has a website.

EXCERPTS:

“I have heard from...people who want to vote for you...they say ‘we don’t hear back when we email the campaign’” (30:02)

“Is your campaign responsive enough to the conservatives who want to support you?” (31:00)

“There is so much at stake in this race…I’m not going to lie, I’m a little concerned about some of the responsiveness” (36:20)

“I’ve been getting a lot of emails. I would say it’s almost 4:1 people concerned about the general lack of awareness that there’s even an election going on right now” (37:43)

“I’ve been hearing this since the start of January that people are concerned…that the campaign isn’t responsive enough, they’re not seeing enough tv or radio advertising” (37:55)

 
Neubauer Earns Conservationists’ Endorsement PDF Print E-mail

lisa-neubauerMADISON – Today, Wisconsin Conservation Voters proudly endorses Judge Lisa Neubauer for the Wisconsin Supreme Court.

Neubauer’s record and experience, as well as her commitment to impartiality, earned her the organization’s endorsement.

“Judge Neubauer’s experience and record speak for themselves,” said Executive Director Kerry Schumann. “She has proven to be an impartial judge who considers admissible scientific evidence when considering cases that impact the environment. She has also ruled in favor of the public trust doctrine, an important part of the Wisconsin constitution that says our waters are owned in common by all Wisconsin citizens and protected for the use and enjoyment of all of us.”

Neubauer’s opponent, Judge Brian Hagedorn, refused to fill out a candidate questionnaire and, as former Governor Scott Walker’s chief legal counsel, was involved in high profile, anti-conservation policy-making and lawsuits.

“We are deeply concerned that Brian Hagedorn cannot be fair and impartial when it comes to protecting our environment and health. As the lead attorney in the Walker Administration, he would have been involved in creating the many laws that put the interests of polluting special interests over the people of Wisconsin,” Schumann said. “And he was part of the Walker Administration when it joined the federal lawsuit against the Clean Power Plan.”

Neubauer has the support of sheriffs – Democrat and Republican – across the state, and she is supported by 331 current and former judges.

“Lisa Neubauer is the clear choice for the state’s highest court,” Schumann said.
