Politics: Wisconsin Supreme Court justice launches first TV campaign ad

MADISON (AP) — Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Ann Walsh Bradley has launched her first television campaign ad.

Her campaign says the ad will begin airing this weekend around the state. The 30-second spot features Bradley declaring that special interests and partisan politics have no place in courtrooms, her job is to stand up for the constitution and she'll never stop fighting for the people of the state.

The ad also features a shot of Bradley and her close friend, Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson, sitting together in the Supreme Court's hearing room. Bradley and Abrahamson are generally seen as the court's liberal-leaning minority.

Bradley faces Rock County Circuit Judge James Daley in the April 7 election. The ad makes no mention of Daley and messages left at his campaign weren't immediately returned.
