EXCHANGE-ELECTION 2018-NORTH DAKOTA-SUPREME COURT

BISMARCK, N.D. — Just one statewide race in North Dakota this year has no political party associated with it: a 10-year term on the state Supreme Court. North Dakota’s judicial races have been nonpartisan since 1910, after a nasty election involving libel in 1906. This year, voters will weigh incumbent Justice Lisa Fair McEvers, who has served almost five years, and longtime Bismarck trial lawyer Bob Bolinske Sr., who previously ran unsuccessfully in 2016. Those involved with the judiciary say experience and temperament are key to consider for Supreme Court candidates. By Jack Dura, Bismarck Tribune. SENT IN ADVANCE: 1,024 words.
