Gableman calls win a victory for law enforcement

Burnett County Judge Michael Gableman said tonight's win is a victory for "all people who envision a more traditional role for their state Supreme Court."

Flanked by supporters who cheered as he made his announcement, Gableman said that role is a conservative one in which judges apply the law, not make it.

To applause, Gableman said his win was also a victory for law enforcement officers who he said know that they will "receive a fair shake, a fair hearing and fair consideration" from him.

"Finally, I do believe it is a victory for all good people in this state who expect from their judges and their justices that not only in addition to upholding the rights of criminals and criminal defendants, their judges and justices will keep in mind, and uphold and honor, the rights of victims as well," he said.

Gableman thanked God, his supporters and his campaign staff for helping him win.

Gableman said he had not heard from Justice Louis Butler yet, but said he would like to congratulate him on his campaign.

"I believe he is a good man," Gableman said, "but I believe we have very different judicial philosophies" and that his own was more in line with what voters expected from their justices.

Gableman said he is "proud and humbled and pleased" that voters supported him.
