MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Ed Fallone knows that history is against him as he looks to knock off Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Pat Roggensack.
In fact, a sitting state Supreme Court justice has been defeated only five times in the past 161 years.
To do it in the April 2 election, the Marquette University law school professor will have to overcome a 34-point margin that separated him and Roggensack in the February primary. The winner gets a 10-year term.
Fallone has argued that Roggensack is part of a dysfunctional Supreme Court and needs to be removed.
Roggensack says her 17 years' experience as a judge separates her from Fallone, who has no such experience.
