NFIB: Justice Kelly will provide predictable legal climate for small business

Madison (April 1, 2020) — The NFIB Wisconsin PAC has endorsed Justice Daniel Kelly for the Wisconsin Supreme Court. The political action committee is comprised exclusively of NFIB members in Wisconsin, and its endorsement is based on a survey of NFIB members throughout the state. The Supreme Court Seat is part of Tuesday, April 7th presidential primary.

“Virtually every Wisconsin small business is directly affected by the decisions and opinions of the Wisconsin Supreme Court,” said Bill G. Smith, NFIB’s state director for Wisconsin. “The Court plays an essential role in maintaining a consistent and predictable legal climate for our small businesses. Justice Daniel Kelly has dedicated a lifetime to the law. His position today on the Wisconsin Supreme Court is the capstone of a vast legal career in nearly every area of legal practice.”

Four years ago, Kelly achieved the highest honor available to a Wisconsin lawyer: a seat on the Wisconsin Supreme Court. Since his appointment, he has reviewed thousands of cases, and personally authored dozens of leading legal opinions. His work on the Court reflects the values that he has displayed throughout his legal career: relentless logic, rigorous analysis, and hard work, all done with a friendly, collegial attitude. He’s earned the respect of judges, lawyers, and law enforcement through even-handed application of the law to the facts in every case. In the election for Wisconsin Supreme Court, Justice Kelly’s experience, knowledge, and judicial temperament are simply unmatched.
NFIB’s endorsement puts the considerable grassroots support of the state’s small businesses behind Kelly’s campaign. Small business owners and their employees vote in high numbers and are known for recruiting friends, family members, and acquaintances to vote.
