More judge stuff ….

scalesAn eagle-eyed reader raised an important point. The Doran-Levinson-Hudson race for NC Supreme Court will only allow you to vote for ONE of the three.  Since that is the case, we’re going to advise casting your vote FOR Jeanette Doran in the May primary.  We’ve had some experience with her.  Her take on the issues appears to be quite conservative and liberty-minded.

We also have some NC Court of Appeals races to look at.  Bill Southern, a Republican district court judge serving Surry and Stokes counties, is seeking to fill the vacancy being left by retiring Democrat Robert C. Hunter.   Mark your ballot for Bill Southern  for Court of Appeals.

Republican incumbent Donna Stroud is seeking reelection to the Court of Appeals.  We think it is safe to send her back for another term.  

Republican Paul Holcombe, a district court judge serving Johnston, Harnett, and Lee counties, is challenging incumbent Democrat judge Mark Davis.  This is a great opportunity to increase the limited government philosophy on the court.  Cast your vote FOR Holcombe on this case. 

So, let’s recap: 

For NC Supreme Court Chief Justice:   Mark Martin

Associate Justice:  Jeanette Doran, Mike Robinson, and Bob Hunter

Court of Appeals:  Southern, Stroud, and Holcombe.

That’s it.  We’re adjourned.

    Just wondering….why do you want to confuse the primary election with races that do not appear on the primary ballot. Are not all Appeals & Supreme Court races state wide as opposed to district votes? I walked neighborhoods this weekend and handed out Republican Sample Ballots for the May 6th primary and the only NC court race on the ballot is the Hudson seat. With the court races being non-partisan, there is enough confusion as to who is who (meaning Republican or Dem) with the races on the primary ballot to not want to place names and races not on the primary ballot in front of the voters. Correct me if I’m wrong but the Martin, Stroud (have met her and she seems like a wonderful person and excellent judge),
    Southern & Holcombe races are not on the primary ballot.

    Keep up the great work on your website. I read you columns daily and appreciate the incite and perspective.

      That was my read as well, Jim Pifer. No other judicial races on the primary ballot except the Doran/Levinson race.
