Eau Claire (WQOW) - One of the candidates on Tuesday's primary ballot campaigned in Eau Claire on Friday.

Dane County Judge Jill Karofsky is one of three people running for the Wisconsin Supreme Court.

During a campaign stop in Eau Claire Friday, Karofsky said her experience as a trial court judge gives her a perspective her opponents do not have.

She also says she wants to return a non-partisan approach to the state's highest court.

"One thing we need [is] a good recusal role in the state of Wisconsin, so that if people give a lot of money to a candidate, then that candidate will not preside over that person or that organization's cases," Karofsky said. "We also need to elect people to the Supreme Court who are committed to following the rule of law."

Karofsky is joined on the ballot by incumbent Justice Dan Kelly who was appointed to the court in 2016 as well as Ed Fallone, a Marquette law professor.

The top two vote-getters will advance to the spring election in April.
