Donald endorses Kloppenburg

Milwaukee Judge Joe Donald has endorsed one-time rival JoAnne Kloppenburg for the Wisconsin Supreme Court, calling her the most qualified candidate in the race. 

Meanwhile, Kloppenburg and Justice Rebecca Bradley have agreed to two debates so far and are looking at other meetings ahead of the April 5 election, their campaigns said. 

Kloppenburg knocked Donald ahead of the Feb. 19 primary for endorsing Bradley in her 2013 bid to retain her then-seat on the Milwaukee County bench and later serving as a reference as she applied for a vacancy on the 1st District Court of Appeals. After the controversy erupted, Donald told WisPolitics.com he had been "bamboozled" when he backed Bradley and that he later realized she was only trying to position herself for the state Supreme Court. 

In Tuesday's statement, Donald said Kloppenburg shares his vision of an independent judiciary. 

"I also appreciate that her campaign is based on hope not fear: she is running because she believes deeply in the power of the law and our courts to make our communities and our State a better place for all our citizens," said Donald, who got 12 percent in last week's primary. 

Bradley campaign manager Luke Martz fired back, "There is only one candidate that has run a negative, partisan campaign - Joanne Kloppenburg and the evidence is in her ads and words. The citizens of Wisconsin deserve better than Kloppenburg's dishonest attacks on Justice Rebecca Bradley and her positive, issue focused campaign."
