Judicial elections are in the air.
Minnesota Supreme Court Justice Paul Anderson and his challenger, Tim Tingelstad, were featured this morning in an MPR news report profiling their race. Justice Lorie Skjerven Gildea and Hennepin District Court Justice Deborah Hedlund will both be guests on an MPR program today at 11:00 a.m. (See post below). And Ramsey County District Court candidates Gail Chang Bohr and Howard Orenstein face off tonight at a candidates' forum at Hamline University School of Law in St. Paul (click here for info).
Meanwhile, in its online Judicial Election Guide, Minnesota Lawyer has added in links to video clips for all the candidates for whom we have video. This is the first year Minnesota Lawyer has taken video of the candidates and made it available. (We always offered to take video of both candidates in a race where we made video available, although not every candidate took us up on the offer.) We'd welcome any input as to whether the video component this year was helpful.
