The field of candidates for three open seats on the Pennsylvania Supreme Court is now set.
Pennsylvania Republicans on Tuesday chose Superior Court Judge Judy Olson, Commonwealth Court Judge Anne Covey and Adams County Judge Mike George as their candidates.
Democrats nominated Philadelphia Judge Kevin Dougherty, and Superior Court judges David Wecht and Christine Donohue.
Dougherty waged an expensive advertising campaign, financed largely with big contributions from organized labor, to become the biggest vote-getter among the six Democrats on the ballot.
The top three vote-getters in each party will compete in the general election for a 10-year term on the state’s highest court.
