Salon: Don't ignore the Wisconsin Supreme Court race — it could be crucial for democracy
The significance of next Tuesday's Wisconsin Supreme Court primary election is known all too well by ACS President Russ Feingold, who previously represented the state in the Senate. In his op-ed in Salon, Feingold explains why this particular race is crucial for the preservation of our fundamental rights and the future of American democracy.
"In April, Wisconsin voters will go to the polls to elect just one justice on just one court — and this race has rightfully been deemed one of the most consequential elections of the year. That's because the person elected to the Wisconsin Supreme Court this year could well prove to be the deciding vote on whether Wisconsin protects abortion rights, on cases over election laws heading into the 2024 election cycle, and on whether the will of Wisconsin voters is upheld after the 2024 presidential election. Regardless of what state you live in, it's worth paying attention to this race, which could impact the fate of our democracy."
