Ohio Judicial Challengers Question Incumbents' Campaign Finance Practices

Former Manager, Quality Judges Initiative

Challengers to two incumbent supreme court justices questioned their campaign financing practices. One of the challengers promised to recuse himself from cases involving contributors, while the other has raised no money. The incumbents deny any wrongdoing, and one argues that raising money is essential to educating voters about candidates' qualifications. The race for a third supreme court seat on the November ballot is less contentious.
