ECU // LAV Endorses Judge Janet Protasiewicz for Wisconsin Supreme Court

Mar 09, 2023

End Citizens United (ECU) // Let America Vote (LAV) today endorsed Judge Janet Protasiewicz for Wisconsin Supreme Court.

“Judge Protasiewicz is the only candidate in this race who can’t be bought and paid for by special interests,” said ECU // LAV President Tiffany Muller. “Unlike her opponent Dan Kelly, she is a fair and impartial jurist, who will always put the constitution and the rights of Wisconsinites ahead of radical partisanship. With the flood of Big Money attempting to restrict the freedom to vote nationwide, we can trust Judge Protasiewicz to make sure Wisconsin voters have access to the ballot box so that they can vote and have their vote counted. We’re proud to endorse her and we look forward to helping her win.”

“I’m honored to be endorsed by End Citizens United and Let America Vote. My opponent has spent years fighting for extreme special interests and is relying on their support to win this race. We need a fair and impartial Wisconsin Supreme Court that follows the law and protects our rights, that’s exactly why I’m running,” said Judge Protasiewicz.

Protasiewicz’s opponent, Dan Kelly, openly admits to having close connections to corporate special interests, jeopardizing the Wisconsin Supreme Court and the foundations of our democracy. In a bombshell report last month, Kelly argued that he’s a better fit for conservative voters because he can court special interest groups to spend big money on his behalf. Kelly has also been at the center of the extremist attempts to overturn Wisconsin’s 2020 election results, advising the Wisconsin GOP on their plan to submit an alternate slate of fake electors. Wisconsinites deserve better than Dan Kelly’s open corruption.

ECU // LAV is dedicated to combating the two biggest challenges facing our democracy: the corrosive impact of Big Money and attempts to block access to the ballot box. The group has more than four million members nationwide.
