ABSTRACT
The article discusses judicial elections in the U.S. The author says that in the last 50 years, campaigns for judicial office have been subject to change, both financial scope and campaign conduct. Campaign expenditures and donations in judicial elections have risen at exponential rates across the country. The author also states that state electing judges must ensure that judicial elections do not become indistinguishable from elections for other political offices.
