PA Voters – Did You Know About the Swing Vote on the PA Supreme Court? [Updated]
The primary for a critical PA judicial election is coming up. The PA Supreme Court (can I say SCOPA?) is evenly split, so the winner of this election will determine the direction of PA courts for many years. The PAGOP site has a list of endorsements, though I would recommend reading this article for actual analysis before taking their recommendations.
Also, PAGOP is endorsing Joan Orie-Melvin for PA Supreme Court. All the candidates running appear to be pro-Constitution but the PAGOP’s abysmal track record (see my previous post) encourages skepticism of whoever they endorse. It turns out there are rumors – and I can’t independently verify this – that Orie-Melvin donated $10,000 to Democrats in Philadelphia in 2007. As the above link shows, FOAC endorses both Orie-Melvin and Cheryl Allen.
