WisDems’ Statement On Judge Jennfier Dorow’s Wisconsin Supreme Court Campaign

MADISON, Wis. — Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Ben Wikler released the following statement on Judge Jennifer Dorow’s entry into the Wisconsin State Supreme Court race:

“A few short weeks ago, Wisconsinites voted for a commonsense leader who supports freedom. Wisconsinites voted for their right to make their own health care decisions and to love who they wish to love, both without government interference. They voted in favor of democracy and election access. The freedoms we fought for and won in the governor’s race remain as critical in the election of the Wisconsin Supreme Court.

“Judge Jennifer Dorow is entering this race as yet another extremist Scott Walker appointee—a brand of politics Wisconsinites have rejected time and again. Judge Dorow has already voiced that she thinks Lawrence v. Texas, the landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision which decriminalized LGBTQ relationships, is among the ‘worst Supreme Court decisions of all time.’

“We have seen what a conservative, partisan court will do. The GOP-backed majority selected a hyper-partisan gerrymander that subverts the will of voters and were one vote away from overturning the 2020 election results. Wisconsinites want fair maps, the ability to make their own health care decisions, and a Wisconsin Supreme Court that upholds the law and safeguards our freedoms. That is what is at stake in this election and we will work to hold Jennifer Dorow and her fellow MAGA Trump Republican, Dan Kelly, accountable.”
