MUKWONAGO – Wisconsin Family Action PAC (WFA PAC), the state’s only conservative pro-family PAC, is endorsing Judge Paul Bugenhagen Jr for election to the Wisconsin Court of Appeals in District II.

“Wisconsin Family Action PAC is proud to endorse Judge Bugenhagen as a judge who understands his role is to uphold the Constitution and enforce our existing laws,” said Julaine Appling, director, WFA PAC.  “Wisconsin conservatives can be confident that Bugenhagen, a family man and active participant in his community, is the right choice for the Court of Appeals, and we urge their action to help elect him on April 7.”

“It’s an honor to receive the support and endorsement of Wisconsin Family Action PAC,” said Judge Bugenhagen. “I believe strongly that judges should be servant leaders on the bench, and in their communities. I pledge to serve the Appellate Court as a judge who upholds the rule of law and defends our Constitution.”

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.

This endorsement of Wisconsin Family Action PAC follows recent endorsements from both 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.
