The NRA-PVF is proud to endorse @JudgeScrenock for the #Wisconsin Supreme Court. It’s important that all pro #2A voters get to the polls on Feb. 20 and elect Judge Michael Screnock to the state Supreme Court! #wipolitics #2A https://t.co/VUmvXWuYLb— NRA-PVF (@NRAPVF) February 14, 2018
Less than 2 hours later, Nikolas Cruz showed up at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, and opened fire with an NRA-approved AR-15 semiautomatic assault rifle. A total of 17 students and teachers are now dead as a result.
If you needed another reason to vote for Tim Burns or Rebecca Dallett in Tuesday's Supreme Court primary, there it is.
And yes, it matters that you come out to vote in this primary, even more than most elections. In the last contested Supreme Court primary, in 2016, only 567,000 votes were cast, a turnout of less than 19%. And of that, 252,000 were the right-wing sheep that voted for Bigoted Becky Bradley.
So if we ratchet turnout up to 800,000 or 900,000 (27-30% turnout), then that would likely be enough for both Burns and Dallett to advance to the April General Election, and knock out right-wing puppet Screnock in the process. That would be a major upgrade from Crooked Michael Gableman, and a huge step toward getting this state back toward respectability.
MAKE IT SO.
