MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The deadline for candidates to file nomination papers for a state Supreme Court run this spring is fast approaching.

The deadline for filing nomination papers is 5 p.m. Monday. Neubauer filed her papers on Dec. 20. Hagedorn hadn't filed as of early Monday morning.
The primary is scheduled for Feb. 19 if necessary. The general election will follow on April 2.
