Darn! No Paul Bucher to kick around

Bucher opts against Supreme Court bid

Former Waukesha County DA Paul Bucher has decided not to run for the state Supreme Court, citing personal, professional and financial reasons.

Bucher ran unsuccessfully for the GOP nomination in last fall’s attorney general race. He told WisPolitics this morning he did not want to take time away from his family and his position at the Gatzke & Ruppelt law firm in New Berlin to meet the demands of a statewide campaign.

He also said the expected expense of taking on Justice Louis Butler and the difficulty of raising “millions of dollars” for the race were factors as well.
Not to mention the prospect of getting his ass kicked twice in a 19-month period.

Paul Bucher. Still never a judge. Not one day, ever.

Praise the Lord.

  1. From JSOnline:

    Instead of statewide campaigning and raising the "millions of dollars" that would be needed to run against Butler, Bucher said he wants to spend as much time as possible with his wife and children, including his 2-year-old youngest child.

    That must make his other kids feel real good. I wonder if Lady McBride had anything to do with the specific emphasis.
