Blake Rutherford's blog
reports that Republican Sen. Shawn Womack
has firmed up plans to run for an open circuit judgeship. The Republican senator isn't exactly the most judicious legislator we've seen. And there's the matter of
his pork-enabling and run-in with the legal ethics commission. For sure you wouldn't want to be a gay person in his court. Steve Harrelson's Under the Dome
helpfully provides a map of Womack's Senate district for the coming race between Rep. Johnny Key
and, maybe, Democratic Rep. Monty Davenport.
