When we think back to the 2022 election cycle, many mainstream media outlets will argue that Republicans “underperformed” in the midterm elections. But what many won’t talk about is the success of conservative candidates in state Supreme Court races across the country.
Most notably in North Carolina and Ohio, conservatives Trey Allen and Richard Dietz managed to overcome $5.6 million in Liberal spending on TV ads to overturn control of the state Supreme Court, giving Conservatives a 5-2 advantage. In Ohio, conservatives Sharon Kennedy, Pat Fischer and Pat DeWine won their races, allowing the conservatives to maintain a 4-3 majority on the bench.
Fast forward to 2023, where the national spotlight once again shines on the Wisconsin State Supreme Court race.
Conservative and former Wisconsin State Supreme Court Justice Dan Kelly is running against liberal Milwaukee County Circuit Court Justice Janet Protasiewicz. With expenses for this race well over $30 million, it is the most expensive state Supreme Court race in US history.
TRUMP’S ACCUSATION LIKELY TO INFLUENCE WISCONSIN SUPREME RACE
The liberal playbook has once again attempted to turn this race into an abortion referendum, but as recent polls have shown, crime is a legitimate threat to the overwhelming majority of Democrats, Republicans and independents. Conservative justices who ran on crime in 2022 won seven of eight state Supreme Court races in states including Michigan, Ohio and North Carolina. And in 2022, in Wisconsin, crime was an issue that allowed Senator Ron Johnson to defeat Democrat Mandela Barnes, a soft-on-crime Democrat.
Soft-on-crime liberals like Protasiewicz have a history of giving criminals a free pass, ranging from light sentences for sex criminals and domestic abusers to convicted murderers who have tried to have witnesses killed. Dan Kelly has exposed Janet Protasiewicz over her blatant record that appears to favor violent criminals over law-abiding citizens.
That was just one of the issues conservatives in Ohio and North Carolina were able to capitalize on the way to their historic victories. But it wasn’t all crime.

Radical justices like Protasiewicz have made it clear that they will use the power of the court to redraw congressional and state legislative maps for future election cycles that are likely to favor the Democrats. It shows how liberals would ultimately like to use the court to legislate their radical agenda instead of going through the legislature where states like Wisconsin are controlled by Republicans.
Speaking at a candidates’ forum in January this year, Protasiewicz herself called the state election maps “rigged.” How could Wisconsinans trust Protasiewicz to avoid redrawing state and federal maps when she so boldly claims how she would adjudicate a redistricting case as part of her pitch to win an election ?
National Democrats know how critical these state Supreme Court races are, which is why Hollywood celebrities and top Democrats like Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are weighing in on the race. This is also why George Soros spends millions of dollars to get his candidate elected.

Now that the Democrats are focused on state-level elections, if they take control of the courts, they will sneak into state legislative majorities and redraw the maps of Congress to regain a majority in the United States House.
With the state Supreme Court’s scrutiny on the line Tuesday, Wisconsinans must come out in droves and vote for conservative Justice Dan Kelly. If Kelly is able to replicate the conservative 2022 playbook, then there is hope that we can end liberal soft-on-crime policies and maintain the integrity of the redistricting process and the state. by right.
