Race is on for Supreme Court Justice seats

As noted in the N&O [1], ¬†Justices Robin Hudson and Cheri Beasley — both of whom are running for re-election to the state Supreme Court — are hosting a “combo-fundraiser” tonight at the Advocates for Justice building, bringing in some signature supporters including¬†former N.C. Chief Justices Henry Frye, Burley Mitchell and James Exum, former Court of Appeals Judges Sidney Eagles Jr. and K. Edward Greene, Cressie Thigpen, David Kirby, Roger and Wade Smith, Phil Baddour, Doug and Peggy Abrams and Janet Ward Black.

But Hudson and Beasley are not the first to kick-off fundraising for the four Supreme Court slots up for grabs in 2014. They’re more likely playing catch up to Justice Mark Martin, who by the end of June of this year had already raised $95,000 for his bid to be elected Chief Justice.
