In Wisconsin, a primary vote for a seat on the state Supreme Court has advanced a liberal candidate, Janet Protasiewicz, and conservative Daniel Kelly to the April 4 runoff, which could tip the court to the left for the first time in 14 years. At stake is the future of Wisconsin’s abortion ban, which went into effect after the overturning of Roe v. Wade last year. The balance of Wisconsin’s top court will also play a key role in voting, amid battles over the state’s heavily gerrymandered legislative and congressional maps, and possible challenges in the 2024 presidential election.
