Expensive judicial elections

The Tuscaloosa News has an editorial today about the recent Supreme Court election in Alabama. The paper was complaining about the election being the most expensive judicial race in the country. For a broader perspective, see the Brennan Centers' report on judicial campaigns. North Carolina recently adopted a system of public financing for judicial elections. See the Justice at Stake site (I don't know how long this story will be on the front page.)
