April 04, 2023

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Danielle Butterfield, Executive Director of Priorities USA, issued the following statement in response to Justice-Elect Janet Protasiewicz’s victory in the Wisconsin Supreme Court Race:

“Congratulations to Justice-Elect Protasiewicz, her campaign staff and Democrats across Wisconsin for their efforts to organize and win for a critical state Supreme Court seat. This win launches a new era in the Badger state after 15 years of a conservative majority.

“This is a defining election for Wisconsin and the rest of the country as abortion rights are stripped away in Wisconsin and other states controlled by the GOP.

“Priorities is proud to have run dynamic digital programming that specifically invested in young women, people of color and infrequent voters throughout Wisconsin. I am confident that Justice-Elect Protasiewicz will continue to be a warrior and fighter for every Wisconsinite and their right to choose.

“Today’s victory is also proof that there’s no such thing as an ‘off year’ election. Civil and human rights are being threatened at the state level across the country which makes our work to inform, mobilize and persuade voters of what’s at stake even more pressing.

“Looking forward to 2024, Priorities is proactively engaging in targeted outreach to voters in Wisconsin and other battleground states to ensure they are informed and empowered to vote.”
