North Carolina 2014 Judicial Race Results

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:

Cheri Beasley 1,228,397 50.07%
Mike Robinson 1,225,185 49.93%

We’ve covered some of the main races here on the blog, including the interesting Supreme Court Justice race. Both Supreme Court Justice candidates (Justice Mark Martin and Judge Ola Lewis) were invited to the forum, however it looks like Judge Ola Lewis backed out due to an ‘unspecified’ conflict:

NC Supreme Court Denies Emergency Fund Release For Opportunity Scholarships

Legislative leaders asked the NC Supreme Court for an emergency release of funds for the Opportunity Scholarships while the decision of Judge Hobgood is being appealed.

The News and Observer piece doesn’t make mention of the legal representation for the parents who has also filed an emergency motion. Representation for the parents in the suit also filed with the NC Supreme Court. I haven’t seen where this motion has been ruled on yet. It asks for the funds for those children already accepted to be released so they are not in academic limbo.
