A partisan judicial race



You can put judges in non-partisan elections, but that doesn't mean you've eliminated partisan considerations from judicial elections. That's the lesson of John Brummett's column today about a hot race for state Court of Appeals between a right-wing Republican, Ronald Williams, and a more highly qualified candidate with Democratic ties, Courtney Henry, who also happens to enjoy support from some solid NWA Republicans.

Williams' biggest drawback is that of his paid consultant, Jim Holt. Is there a better litmus test for a judicial candidate than Holt's presence?
