Wisconsin GOP hoping to see Democratic presidential primary end

State Supreme Court candidates are technically considered nonpartisan, but party politics shape races for Wisconsin’s top bench like other elections. This year’s court race coincides with general elections at the county level and the Democratic Party’s presidential primary. Stephanie Soucek, Chairwoman of the Door County Republican chapter, says the Democrats could benefit from having a high profile contest act as a magnet to get their voters to the polls where they could also weigh in down-ballot. The Republican primary is uncontested, and that creates a potential turnout problem for the GOP.


Former Vice President Joe Biden has begun to pull away from Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders over the past two weeks. The next major prize in the campaign is delegate-rich Florida, which gets decided Tuesday.
