Two supreme court judges stand for retention in midterm elections
Two state supreme court judges who are running unopposed hope to be retained for 12-year terms following midterm elections Nov. 6.
Judges Mary Rhodes Russell and Wesley Brent Powell both have appointments that expire in December. Russell, a nonpartisan incumbent appointed in 2004 by Democratic Governor Bob Holden, was first retained for a full 12-year term in 2006. Powell, a nonpartisan incumbent appointed to the court in 2017 by Republican Governor Eric Greitens, now hopes to earn a full 12-year term.
Both candidates are running unopposed.
