MADISON -- The race for Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice was dominated by headlines about Rebecca Bradley's college writings, but that didn't stop her on Election Day, as she won re-election against challenger JoAnne Kloppenburg.

Bradley won 53 percent of the vote, while Kloppenburg trailed with 47 percent.

As early as last month's Marquette University Law poll, it became clear headlines about Bradley's collegiate opinions weren't affecting her support.

Bradley was appointed to the Wisconsin Supreme Court in 2015, after the death of Justice N. Patrick Crooks.
