MUKWONAGO – Judge Paul Bugenhagen Jr, candidate for the Wisconsin Court of Appeals in District II, announced today the endorsement of Pro-Life Wisconsin Victory Fund PAC.  

“A judicial conservative with a deep commitment to the rule of law, Judge Bugenhagen will adjudicate fairly and impartially and with respect for our religious liberties,” said Matt Sande, director of the Victory Fund PAC.  “His belief in the dignity of the human person, devotion to family, and fidelity to the Constitution make him the only choice for pro-life voters. Pro-Life Wisconsin is proud to endorse him.”

“I’m grateful to receive the support of Pro-Life Wisconsin Victory Fund PAC,” said Judge Bugenhagen. “It’s clear to me that Wisconsin voters want judges who will uphold the rule of law, to protect our communities and families. That’s the kind of judge I am, and the kind of judge I’ll be on the Court of Appeals.”

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. He spent the four previous years in the family and probate divisions of the court and was named head of the family court division in 2018.

His campaign has also been endorsed by Wisconsin Family Action PAC, the Milwaukee Police Association and Wisconsin Right to Life PAC.  

Judge Bugenhagen resides in Mukwonago with his wife, Crosby, and their daughter.  He faces 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.
