Winnig says, "I would be a dynamic leader, unlike anyone on the Supreme Court now, to help move the law forward and correct areas of the law that aren't working now."
He added that he was running for the Supreme Court because "I take the profession of being an attorney very seriously. We are ethical, honorable people as lawyers. We help people. Everybody with a law license has a different way of interpreting that, but the [2008 Justice Michael] Gableman race was the most despicable thing I've seen in the legal profession, much less politics. People have been talking about it ever since, but what have people done about it? Well, I found a way to do what I could to stand up for our profession and the Supreme Court".
