Wisconsin Supreme Court candidates to debate

Published On: Mar 22 2013 06:45:27 AM CDT

MADISON, Wis. -

Wisconsin Supreme Court candidates Pat Roggensack and Ed Fallone are scheduled to meet for a debate a little over a week before the April 2 election.

Roggensack is seeking a second 10-year term on the state's highest court while Fallone is running his first election. The two are scheduled to meet Friday night for a debate sponsored by the state Bar Association.

While the race is officially nonpartisan, Republicans are supporting Roggensack and Democrats are backing Fallone.

Roggensack argues that her 17 years' experience as a judge make her the better candidate. Fallone is a Marquette University law professor and has never worked as a judge.

He said he brings other experience to the job and Roggensack doesn't deserve another term because the current Supreme Court is dysfunctional.
