Pennsylvania judicial candidates campaign for 1 last day

    Candidates for Pennsylvania’s appellate courts are putting in one last full day of campaigning before Tuesday’s election.

    The main focus is on the battle for an unprecedented three open seats on the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, the state’s highest court, in which the seven candidates have raised millions of dollars for TV ads.

    The Democratic nominees are Superior Court judges David Wecht and Christine Donohue and Philadelphia Judge Kevin Dougherty. The Republicans are Superior Court Judge Judy Olson, Commonwealth Court Judge Anne Covey and Adams County Judge Mike George. Philadelphia Judge Paul Panepinto is running as an independent.

    Tuesday’s statewide ballot also features contests for one open each on the Superior Court and the Commonwealth Court.

    The Election Day forecast calls for sunny skies and daytime highs of around 70 degrees.
