Tim Burns, who took the unusual approach of running as a Democrat and taking partisan stands on issues, was eliminated.
Screnock and Dallet will face off in the April 3 general election. The winner will replace retiring Justice Michael Gableman on the court. He is part of a five-justice conservative majority. There are two liberal justices.

I would say that voters tend to like candidates for the court with experience as prosecutors and judges. Normally, those candidates tend to be conservatives. But Dallet is an exception and, in picking her, those on the left have given themselves a chance to win.— Jason Stein (@jasonmdstein) February 21, 2018
I agree with this. WI democrat voters today were sober and savvy enough to see which candidate had the better chance in April, and didn't just fall for the guy who was trying to be the most liberal. https://t.co/g4ovLT9fCj— Jay Weber (@JayWeber3) February 21, 2018
I know that WI conservative leaders wanted Tim Burns to advance on the notion he'd be easier for Michael Screnock to beat in April, but I am happy to see that Burn's strategy to overtly campaign as a partisan advocate failed.— Jay Weber (@JayWeber3) February 21, 2018
