Eric Holder Endorses Judge Janet Protasiewicz for Wisconsin Supreme Court

February 23, 2023

Washington, D.C. — Today, Eric H. Holder, Jr., the 82nd Attorney General of the United States and Chairman of the National Democratic Redistricting Committee (NDRC), announced his endorsement of Judge Janet Protasiewicz for the Wisconsin Supreme Court and issued the following statement: 

“This upcoming election underscores the fact that there is no such thing as an off year for our rights, freedoms, or democracy. In Judge Janet Protasiewicz, Wisconsinites have a dedicated public servant, a fair-minded and impartial jurist, a veteran prosecutor, and a community leader who will restore fairness and common sense to the Wisconsin Supreme Court. Most importantly, Judge Janet will uphold the rule of law and protect the rights of all Wisconsinites. 

 “The contrast between Judge Janet and her far-right, MAGA opponent could not be more clear. He will take the court even further to the extreme – criminalizing abortion, eroding voting rights and even denying the results of free and fair elections. With democracy and fundamental rights on the ballot in April, the stakes are high and complacency is not an option. It is incumbent upon all Wisconsinites to participate in this election and to vote for Judge Janet Protasiewicz.”
