MADISON (AP) -- Sauk County Circuit Judge Michael Screnock has won endorsements in the race for the Wisconsin Supreme Court from three conservative sitting justices and a host of other conservative judges.

Screnock's campaign announced the endorsements Thursday. They are another sign that he is the conservatives' choice to replace Justice Michael Gableman who is not seeking re-election next year.

Screnock won the backing of Gableman and fellow current Justices Rebecca Bradley and Dan Kelly. Former justices Jon Wilcox and David Prosser also announced their support, along with appeals court judges Mark Gundrum, a former Republican state lawmaker, and Brian Hagedorn, who used to be Gov. Scott Walker's attorney.

Madison attorney Tim Burns and Milwaukee County Circuit Judge Rebecca Dallet are also running and drawing Democratic support.
