Washington State: big money in the judicial races

The Olympian reports: More than $1.1 million has flowed into Supreme Court candidates' campaigns this year, and an additional $690,000 has been raised by independent political committees working on the candidates' behalf.

The mass of money - totaling $1.8 million, according to state campaign finance reports - puts the state on a record pace for spending on judicial races, according to Washington, D.C.-based Justice At Stake.

The nonpartisan group advocates for an independent judiciary and has both Republican and Democratic members on its board. -- Money pours into court races - The Olympian - Olympia, Washington
