Ohio Voters Oust Two Incumbents from State Supreme Court; One Winner Had Refused to Accept Any Campaign ContributionsNovember 7th, 2012
On November 6, two incumbent members of the Ohio Supreme Court were ousted. One of the two winners is William O’Neill, who had run twice before but had never before won. He always refuses to accept campaign contributions. He has been an Appellate Court judge in the past, and in addition he works as a registered nurse in a pediatric emergency department. He is a proponent of public funding for candidates for State Supreme Court Justice. See this story.
Ohio has partisan elections for State Supreme Court Justice, although ballot labels are absent for that office on the general election ballot. O’Neill is a Democratic nominee.
