As a result, they’ve now garnered national attention.
According to Amber Phillips of the Washington Post, the battle for the three open seats on PA’s highest court is one of their eight races to watch for today.
“Three out of the seven spots in Pennsylvania’s state Supreme Court are up for grabs on Tuesday, which could mean one of the biggest court shake-ups in recent history,” Phillips wrote.
“There’s a lot at stake after Election Day, too,” she continued. “That includes whether Pennsylvania, a swing state, leans Republican or Democratic in the decades to come, settling lawsuits between more gun-control focused Philadelphia and the pro-gun rest of the state, deciding Voter ID initiatives, and hopefully departing from the court’s scandal-plagued past (recent justices have resigned in e-mail porn scandals and amid corruption charges).”
Nice to know those recent scandals haven’t gone unnoticed…I guess.
