MUKWONAGO – Today, Judge Paul Bugenhagen Jr announced the endorsements of Waukesha Circuit Court Judge and former Wisconsin Attorney General Brad Schimel and Waukesha County District Attorney Sue Opper. These two impactful endorsements from Waukesha County’s legal community reiterate Judge Bugenhagen’s commitment to defending the Constitution. 

Judge Bugenhagen said, “Judge Schimel and District Attorney Opper are highly respected in the legal community and are dedicated to serving Waukesha County. It is vital that Wisconsin judges are committed to upholding the Constitution and the rule of law. I am honored to have their endorsements.”

Bugenhagen’s campaign has been endorsed by Wisconsin Family Action PAC, the Milwaukee Police Association, Wisconsin Right to Life PAC, Wisconsin Supreme Court Justices Bradley, Hagedorn and Kelly, and former Justices Gableman and Prosser. He is also endorsed by many other judges and sheriffs throughout the counties of the district.

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.

Bugenhagen resides in Mukwonago with his wife, Crosby, and their daughter. He faces Lisa Neubauer on Tuesday, April 7.


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.
