Roggensack announces Supreme Court re-election bid

Published On: Nov 28 2012 09:31:51 PM CST

Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Patience Roggensack said she is running for re-election.

Roggensack announced her re-election campaign Wednesday. She said as a justice, she has "called the balls and strikes" as each case has required.

Roggensack also notes she is the only justice with the court who previously served as a state appeals court judge.

Roggensack is part of the conservative majority on the high court. She was elected to a 10-year term in 2003 and faces re-election next year.

Lemon law attorney Vince Megna, who in recent months has posted videos lampooning Gov. Scott Walker and other Republicans, has said he is running for the Wisconsin Supreme Court.

Dane County Circuit Judge Maryann Sumi and Marquette University law professor Ed Fallone also said they are considering entering the race.
