Pictured above, poll workers at the St. Luke’s Lutheran Church voting location in the City of Middleton.

State Supreme Court Justice Pat Roggensack and Marquette University law professor Ed Fallone earned the number one and two spots in a three-way primary last week, setting them up to face off in the April 2 general election. 

Eliminated from the contest was consumer attorney Vince Megna, who finished a distant third.

While statewide Roggensack earned more than twice as many votes as Fallone, local results once again illustrated that the City of Middleton leans far more heavily to the left than the neighboring Town of Middleton.

In the city, Fallone, who is viewed as the more liberal candidate, received 1,001 votes. Roggensack, who has the backing of many Republicans, got 478. In the town, Roggensack defeated Fallone 259 to 230.
