Wisconsin Supreme Court Overrules Gov, Primary Is On

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports:

The Wisconsin Supreme Court reinstated Tuesday’s election Monday, five hours after Democratic Gov. Tony Evers called it off because of the widening coronavirus pandemic. In a brief 4-2 ruling, the court undid an emergency order that Evers issued that would have closed the polls.

Their decision came in response to a lawsuit filed by Republican lawmakers. The high court’s ruling fell along ideological lines.

Four conservatives — Chief Justice Patience Roggensack and Justices Rebecca Bradley, Brian Hagedorn and Annette Ziegler — were in the majority. Liberal Justices Ann Walsh Bradley and Rebecca Dallet were in dissent.
