Skip to comments.LIVE UPDATES: Joe Biden wins Wisconsin's presidential primary with a critical state Supreme Court race still too close to call
Posted on 04/13/2020 4:29:45 PM PDT by Coronal
Wisconsin is releasing results from its presidential primary and state Supreme Court election after the deadline to send in absentee ballots passes at 4 p.m. Central Time and 5 p.m. Eastern Time on April 13.
What's at stake?
Bernie Sanders officially dropped out of the presidential primary on April 8, making former VP Joe Biden the presumptive Democratic nominee. While Sanders will continue to stay on the ballot in upcoming primaries and earn delegates from those contests, he formally endorsed Biden on April 13.
In the Democratic presidential primary, Wisconsin allocates 84 pledged delegates to the Democracy convention, with 55 allocated between Wisconsin's eight congressional districts and 29 at-large and PLEO (party leader and elected official) delegates allocated based on the statewide results.
The other major statewide election on the ballot this year in Wisconsin was a key State Supreme Court race, in which Democratic-backed Jill Karofsky challenged Republican-backed Judge Daniel Kelly, who was appointed by former Republican Gov. Scott Walker.
While state Supreme Court candidates in Wisconsin are technically nonpartisan, they are almost always aligned with or supported by political parties. Currently, the court is composed of five conservative-aligned judges, including Kelly, and two liberal judges.

Of course it is to close to call they have to find all those ballots in a trunk somewhere!!
Biden is a zombie candidate. The Democrats are up the creek without a paddle when it comes to Sleepy Joe Biden.
bigger story: trump has over 363K with just 53% reporting, uncontested.... the kenyan obammy had less than 300K total back in 2012
this in the middle of a lockdown / chinese virus pandemic.
Actually, I don’t know how they can call the SC race close. Current numbers show Karofsky up by about 51,000 votes with more than half of the precincts reporting. I don’t know how Kelly will overcome that.
It looks like George SoreAss and Eric Holder have bought a liberal seat on the Supreme Court.
Meanwhile it looks like the conservative SC incumbent is losing handily to his moonbat challenger.
Nothing to cheer about.
In the back of a Tesla or a Prius. At the post office.
A Tesla or Prius isn’t going to hold 58,000 ballots, which is about the current lead for Karofsky.
Marsy’s Law (victim’s rights) passed easily.
Nuts I wanted the Republican to win to keep the conservative in the majority.
It still is 4-3 now with conservative majority. 5-2 would have been sweet. Dems will say see republicans we turn out even during a coronavirus.
F Biden...it’s Kelly that matters.
It is too bad that Slo-Joe is too incoherent to understand much of anything . Dementia is a sad thing. ...to think he is the DIMS’ best. LOL.
No, the race was called and it wasn’t close. The DemoKKKrat won big.
Rs gonna have to turn out like they did for Hagedorn to have a chance in NOV.
Well, with 71% in Trump has 428,000, other R, 7,000, combined Ds over 614,000.
I wish someone would explain why Wisconsin banned release of election returns for a week as they did here.
And i wish someone would assure us that there was proper security and chain of custody of the ballots, as they lay somwhere until the powers that be allowed the votes to be counted.
