Here Comes the Judge(s)

Virtually no attention has been paid to judicial races this year. The high profile NC races of Barack Obama, Kay Hagan, and Bev Perdue have sucked the air out of the room, and down ballot races have gotten virtually no attention. The judicial races have been completely ignored by the media.

And judges effect our lives in ways big and small. We often don't pay know their names or pay enough attention when they hand down decisions. But judges matter.

If you care about choice, or the environment, or civil liberties or just prefer judges who exhibit good, old fashioned commonsense, then this is the year to pay attention. Fortunately, we've got some excellent choices this year.

Check the judges here.
