Business, Lawyers Groups Back Different Candidates For Supreme Court
In the two Ohio Supreme Court races in the November 5th election, groups are pushing candidates because of whether they are perceived as tending to be pro- or anti-business.
The Ohio Chamber of Commerce endorsed Lundberg Stratton and Lieutenant Governor Maureen O'Connor, who is running for an open seat. Both are Republicans.
The Ohio Academy of Trial Lawyers backs Burnside and Hamilton County Municipal Judge Tim Black. Both are Democrats.
