North Carolina: New super PAC gets involved in supreme court race (Updated)

Senior Director

In the sole supreme court race this fall, both the incumbent and the challenger have qualified for public financing, but a super PAC known as N.C. Judicial Coalition has formed to support the incumbent. The election will determine whether the 4-3 balance on the court will tilt in favor of conservative or liberal justices. The challenger, a court of appeals judge, decried the super PAC as an effort by a group of Republicans to “turn the North Carolina courts red.”
