Know Your Nonpartisan Candidates
Most elected positions are partisan, but there are several key nonpartisan contests this November. We chose to focus on nonpartisan candidates, because information on these candidates is often less available and because many voters already have fixed beliefs about Democrat or Republican candidates.
NC Supreme Court Associate Justice
We endorse Mike Morgan for NC Supreme Court Associate Justice. He has served as Superior Court Judge since 2005, has served as a faculty member at the National Judicial College for 24 years, and is committed to being fair and impartial. Judge Morgan’s opponent, Robert Edmunds, ruled that the 2010 NC house districts were not drawn with racial prejudice.
