MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Nominees for the final four spots on new partisan commissions to oversee elections and ethics laws in Wisconsin have been delivered to Gov. Scott Walker.

Democratic legislative leaders on Thursday submitted three former judges to serve on the Ethics Commission and three former county clerks for the Elections Commission. Republicans had previously submitted their picks.

Once Walker announces his four selections, all 12 of the appointments to the commissions will have been made.

The new partisan commissions were created by the Legislature to replace the nonpartisan Government Accountability Board beginning in July.

Democratic picks for the Ethics Commission are former judges Bonnie Gordon, Frederic Fleishauer and Robert Kinney.

Picks for the Elections Commission are former clerks Stephen Pickett, Julie Glancey and Carol Schumacher.
