Over the last year, I wrote fairly extensively on some of the Supreme Court and Court of Appeals races. The highlighted race amongst those articles was the Supreme Court Justice race, specifically the Chief Justice spot.
That race was between Chief Justice Mark Martin and Judge Ola Lewis. Chief Justice Martin won that race handily with almost 73% of the vote which translated to 1,741,421 votes for Martin to Lewis’s 667,772.
Ervin, Hudson and Beasley all hung on to their seats. The Beasley race was particularly close with only just over 3,200 votes separating them:
SUPREME COURT ASSOC. JUSTICE (Beasley)
NAME ON BALLOT PARTY BALLOT COUNT PERCENT
Cheri Beasley 1,228,397 50.07%
Mike Robinson 1,225,185 49.93%

GEE, We’ve heard that one before. Continue reading
