Judge Rated Low by Bar Wins GOP Primary: Surprising Pennsylvania Supreme Court Election?

In the Pennsylvania Supreme Court Republican primary a candidate, Judge Anne Covey,  rated “not recommended” by the Pennsylvania Bar Association defeated Justice Correale Stevens who the bar rated “highly recommended,” Malia Reddick points out. Previously, Covey called the judicial-evaluation process of the Pennsylvania Bar Association as "unethical, unprofessional, and less than forthright," according to The Philadelphia Inquirer.

Three seats on the court are open in the general elections this November. The GOP candidates (who each won the May primary) are Anne Covey, Michael George, and Judith Olson

The Philadelphia Inquirer discusses campaign contributions.
