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

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.”
