This is a hard one for me. Milwaukee Circuit Court judge. I don't personally know Bill Pocan, and I do personally know Chris Liegel. I hear through the grapevine that the progressive choice is Bill Pocan. Chris and I spoke for an incredibly long time at a St Pat's party a few weeks ago and as a result, his lawn sign is in my yard.
Bill however was a Doyle appointee and from all accounts an outstanding judge who has gained an enormous amount of respect in Children's Court for his common sense and straight forward manner. Certainly not worthy of losing on the court.
Chris on the other hand is also a solid progressive and great guy.
I have to say, I have no idea who I'm voting for in this one. I've heard really persuasive arguments on both sides...
