Another important, but under reported Republican win last night

Replacing a Dem judge is important.  Putting in someone who actually rules by following the law is a big thing.

Not really. However, the Republicans did win a statewide race in Pennsylvania yesterday. Joan Orie Melvin, a Republican, defeated Jack Panella, a Democrat, to win a 10-year term on the Pennsylvania Supreme Court Tuesday. The final count was 53-47 percent.

The Democrat raised nearly $2.35 million — including a half-million each from the unions and trial lawyers — and outspent the Republican by a ratio of 3-1, but to no avail. Judge Melvin is said to be a more restrained jurist than her Democratic opponent, who is also a sitting judge. At any rate, the money spent by the unions and the trial lawyers suggests that there was more than "a dime’s worth" of difference between the way the two candidates go about judging.

Power Line – As New Jersey goes, so goes Pennsylvania
