Prosser’s primary victory could keep outside money out

2

State Supreme Court Justice David Prosser’s commanding victory in Tuesday’s primary election could freeze out the outside spending typical in state supreme court races. Prosser received 55% of the votes in the four-way primary, while his nearest opponent JoAnne Kloppenburg was only able to get 25% of the vote.

For liberal groups, it is going to be hard to justify spending the kind of money needed to help Kloppenburg win when she is such a long shot at this point. On the flip side, conservative groups may hold back a bit thinking Prosser should easily coast to victory.
