The Spring Election in Wisconsin is now less than one month away. And on the ballot statewide in that April 4 election is the race for Wisconsin Supreme Court, where Janet Protasiewicz and Daniel Kelly are competing to be elected to a 10-year term. That election will determine the ideological balance of the state Supreme Court, with conservative justice Patience Roggensack retiring, leaving an open seat.

It’s been about two weeks now since the primary and we’re looking ahead to the general election. So to help us recombobulate, we’re joined by Charles Franklin, director of the Marquette University Law School Poll, to talk about primary results, statewide trends, key regions, turnout and much more.
