State Supreme Court Election
After the primary, I expect this race to really heat up. There is a lot at stake here. The retirement of Justice Wilcox puts a conservative seat up for grabs. On a court as closely divided as ours, every vote matters. Money is going to be poured into this state by various interest groups. Tons of attack ads will be run. Mud will be slung. It will be a grand olde election. When it's all said and done, the court will either be roughly where it was before or it will have shifted further to the left. Exciting, isn't it?
I probably won't post much about the race though. I feel a little weird about it, since I'm going to be a member of the bar soon (God willing). One should always be mindful of the toes they are about to step on. But I may change my mind. Anyone who has even the most superficial understanding of my legal views knows who I'm voting for anyway.
