MADISON, Wis. -

Who's in and who's out of two statewide elections to be decided in April is starting to come into focus with candidates circulating petitions to get on the ballot starting Saturday.

A Wisconsin Supreme Court justice will be elected April 2 as will the secretary of the Department of Public Instruction. Both races are nonpartisan.

The two incumbents -- Justice Patience Roggensack and DPI Secretary Tony Evers -- announced they are seeking re-election.

In the Supreme Court race, lemon law attorney Vince Megna is running against Roggensack.

Dane County Circuit Judge Maryann Sumi and Marquette University law school professor Ed Fallone said they are considering running.

Republican state Sen. Don Pridemore said he will announce Monday whether he will run against Evers.

Nomination papers are due Jan. 2.
