In Wisconsin, liberal judge Janet Protasiewicz won the special election for the state’s Supreme Court, flipping Wisconsin’s highest court after 15 years of a conservative majority. Protasiewicz’s victory gives the court the votes it needs to restore abortion rights — which were taken away after Roe v. Wade was overturned last summer — challenge the state’s highly gerrymandered legislative maps, and prevent potential anti-democratic maneuvers in 2024 in the crucial swing state. Protasiewicz addressed her supporters last night after her win was called.

Justice-elect Janet Protasiewicz: “Our state is taking a step forward to a better and brighter future, where our rights and freedoms will be protected. And while there is still work to be done, tonight we celebrate this historic victory that has obviously reignited hope in so many of us.”
