During and after the Civil War, when the Wisconsin Supreme Court consisted of three members, justices earned a salary ($2,500) twice of that as the governor of the Badger State ($1,250). By the 1870s, however, the members of these two elected branches of government were earning the same amount. Today, the Chief Justice ($152,495) earns $8,000 a year more than associate justices ($144,495) with the governor just a few duckets behind ($144,423).
Republican William Stafford and Socialist Victor Berger squared off against each other 10 times in Wisconsin 5th CD U.S. House elections between 1902 and 1928. Stafford won seven contets (1902, 1904, 1912,1914, 1916, 1920, 1928) while Berger won three (1918, 1922, 1926). Berger was not seated by the House after his 1918 win due to federal convictions (later reversed) on articles he had written opposing the U.S. entrance into WWI.
