The primary eliminated Burns from contention, setting up an April 3 general election face-off between Michael Screnock and Rebecca Dallet. At 9 p.m. on Tuesday, as the results of the primary for Wisconsin Supreme Court became clear, the door to Madison attorney Tim Burns' campaign office was locked.

His first-place finish also comes after benefiting from about $800,000 spent on advertisements from outside groups like the Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce on his behalf, and receiving the most fundraising dollars from the Republican Party of Wisconsin.

Screnock was appointeds a judge by Republican Gov. Scott Walker in 2015.

He has pledged to maintain a nonpolitical campaign, although the support from Republicans - including Gov. Scott Walker - has caused critics to say Screnock would be a "rubber stamp" for the conservative agenda.

Windsor voters casted 328 ballots for Dallet and 298 for Screnock, according to Dane County data.

Milwaukee County Circuit Judge Rebecca Dallet says she can win election to the Wisconsin Supreme Court by "fighting for the people".

Dallet, while left-leaning, said her professional history overseeing thousands of cases as a judge proves she is an impartial observer of justice.

Chelsea 1 Barcelona 1 - Managerial Chit-Chat
In the last three games we scored eight goals and six have come from Pedro, Willian and Hazard, they work very well together. Messi , 30, scored the equaliser in Tuesday night's Champions League first leg with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.


Still, Dallet's good showing, along with her other opponent's totals from Tuesday, combine to demonstrate this is her race to lose.

In the city of Chetek, Screnock had 53 votes, Dallet had 32 and Burns had nine votes.

Burns took the unusual approach of identifying as a Democrat and stating his support for numerous liberal issues, including fighting voter ID requirements and arguing for income equality. The self-proclaimed "unshakable champion of progressive values" built his platform as the candidate who would "stand up" to Walker.

The race had higher turnout than usual for a primary.

Burns won the backing of several current and former liberal lawmakers and groups, including U.S. Rep. Mark Pocan and Democratic Senate Minority Leader Jennifer Shilling. In all likelihood, the voters who preferred Burns will probably turn out to vote for Dallet a month and a half from now.

"I'm surprised because that what we wasn't what we saw on the campaign trail".

"It went well", said Windsor Clerk Christine Capstran. "I'm sure we'll be doing some looking back and coming days, and a lot of people will, but I don't have an answer and I'm surprised that it didn't resonate".
