MUKWONAGO – Judge Paul Bugenhagen Jr, candidate for Wisconsin Court of Appeals in District II, received the endorsement of Wisconsin Right to Life PAC, one of the state’s leading organizations working to promote and defend the right to life.

“The Wisconsin Right to Life PAC is thrilled to endorse Judge Bugenhagen. He has exemplified his judicial philosophy and commitment to the Constitution in his role as judge in Waukesha County and we are confident he would continue to do so as a Wisconsin Appellate Court Judge in District II,” said Kristen Nupson, Wisconsin Right to Life PAC Director. “Bugenhagen understands that he serves only to uphold laws, not create them from the bench.” 

Judge Paul Bugenhagen Jr was elected Waukesha County Circuit Court Judge in 2015 after defeating a two-term incumbent. He currently presides over the criminal division of the court. This follows four years in the family and probate divisions of the court, where Bugenhagen was named head of the family court division in 2018.

“I am honored to receive the endorsement of Wisconsin Right to Life PAC,” said Judge Bugenhagen. “For my wife, Crosby and I, family comes first. I strive to serve Wisconsin individuals and families by upholding our laws as they are written, each and every day.”

Judge Bugenhagen resides in Mukwonago with his wife, Crosby, and their daughter. He will face Judge Lisa Neubauer on April 7, 2020.


The District II Appellate Court includes Calumet, Fond du Lac, Green Lake, Kenosha, Manitowoc, Ozaukee, Racine, Sheboygan, Walworth, Washington, Waukesha, and Winnebago counties. This seat is currently held by Judge Lisa Neubauer. In the 2019 Wisconsin Supreme Court election, Justice-elect Brian Hagedorn defeated Judge Lisa Neubauer by a wide margin in District II.  Bugenhagen can be found on Twitter and Facebook at @JudgeBugenhagen. The election will occur on April 7th, 2020.
