Important Spring Election Information

Dear Friends,

On April 7th, 2015, Wisconsin voters will elect the next Supreme Court Justice for a ten year term, and vote on a GOP-backed constitutional amendment to determine how the Chief Justice is chosen. It is vital that our supporters vote YES on this amendment to secure a more efficient and effective State Supreme Court.  Please review the information below to learn more:

What is it?

Today, under existing rules, the longest-serving Justice on the Supreme Court holds the chief justice position.  Wisconsin is one of only five states in which the chief justice is based solely on seniority.  In the State Legislature, the Assembly and Senate both elect their own leaders.  The committee of 10 chief judges who lead the circuit courts in Wisconsin elect their own leader.

This constitutional amendment would allow a majority of the justices serving on the court to elect their chief justice to a two-year term.  This common-sense amendment inserts democracy into the process – and will result in a more efficient and effective Supreme Court.

What will the ballot question look like?

Ballot Question: Shall section 4(2) of article VII of the constitution be amended to direct that a chief justice of the Supreme Court shall be elected for a two-year term by a majority of the justices then serving on the court?

A “Yes” vote will allow a majority of Justices to elect their chief justice to a two-year term.

How can I help?

Pass this information along to your social circles to ensure our supporters are aware of the upcoming spring election and become educated on what will appear on the ballot.

With your help, we can secure a more efficient and effective State Supreme Court, and join the vast majority of states that allow a majority of justices to elect their chief justice.

On Wisconsin,
Brad Courtney
Chairman
Republican Party of Wisconsin

Exclusive: Republicans Get Serious About African American Outreach

RPW Announces African American Outreach EffortsYou know all the cliches.

‘Republicans are racist.’ ‘Republicans don’t care about African Americans.’ ‘Republicans likes Scott Walker owe their success to segregation and dog whistle racism.’

And then there are the cliches that seem to have a ring of truth.

‘Republicans can’t win African American votes.’ ‘Republican don’t even court African American voters.’ ‘African Americans will never vote for Republicans.’

Democrats, the media, and even a host of Republicans might believe these things to be true - but don’t bother Orlando Owens with this nonsense. He’s too busy building a movement.

Commemorating the Wisconsin Republican Party’s first state convention

Grand Old Partisan commemorates the first convention of the Wisconsin Republican Party. It occurred just a week after the GOP’s state kickoff Under the Oaks in Michigan. Anti-slavery newspaper editors who called for this meeting had selected the anniversary of the Northwest Ordinance of 1787, which banned slavery from the region.

Most residents of Wisconsin opposed the Kansas-Nebraska Act, enacted by Democrats and their allies. This vile law extended slavery into the western territories. Friends of freedom knew they had to unite politically if the Democratic Party were to be stopped from destroying the country.

On the morning of July 13, 1854, nearly four thousand people gathered in the park by the capitol building in Madison. . . .
