Sandra Day O'Connor, the only recent Supreme Court justice to have held elective office, discussed her opposition to judicial elections at the University of Minnesota's Humphrey Institute last week.
Retired Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor said Minnesota should work to preserve its independent judiciary and become a model for other states.
O'Connor advocated for elections in which an incumbent judge is either accepted or rejected.
GOVERNING Politics is the place for news and analysis on campaigns and elections. If there's a ballot measure in California, a legislative election in Alabama, a mayoral election in Anchorage or a governor's race in Rhode Island, GOVERNING Politics probably is writing about it. We love everything about state and local politics, from polls and campaign ads to policy debates and demographic trends.
