Candidates send out robocalls as election nears

The candidates in top spring races are using all available tools going into tomorrow's election.

Supreme Court Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson has two robocalls going out to voters in which she touts herself as a fair, independent and nonpartisan chief justice.

In one call, she promises that "I will continue to keep politics out of our courts."

The second touts her work developing mortgage foreclosure mediation to "help Wisconsin families."

Meanwhile, Dane Co. executive candidate Nancy Mistele is touting her endorsement by Wisconsin Right to Life in a new robocall going out today.

Mistele's campaign manager Jon Horne said the call went out to between 20,000 and 25,000 phone numbers today. But he declined to release the full text of the call.

According to a partial text of the call obtained by WisPolitics, Mistele says:

"I am running for County Executive because I don't believe government has the moral standing to tackle other big issues if it's not willing to protect our littlest children. That's why I'm committed to fighting for the rights of the unborn. And that's why I've received the backing of Wisconsin Right to Life.

"I hope I can count on your vote on Tuesday, April 7. I know there are some things more important than politics and a child's right to life is one of them. This call is paid for by Mistele for County Executive, Gerald Luebke, treasurer."
