Reilly wins heated Appeals Court race

    After a bitter campaign in which both sides accused the other of mudslinging, Paul Reilly bested fellow Waukesha County Judge Linda Van De Water for a spot on the 2nd District Court of Appeals on Tuesday.
    Reilly, who won a six-year term and will be sworn in come August, said he believed integrity and character won out in the campaign. But he stopped short of taking any more shots at his opponent.
    "I’ll let the voters answer that question," Reilly said when asked how his campaign displayed character and integrity compared to Van De Water’s. "We made a conscience effort from the beginning to run a clean campaign, and we did."
    The race included some inflammatory accusations from both sides. Reilly questioned Van De Water’s work ethic and temperament, while Van De Water accused him of being soft on crime.
