The Dallas Morning News reports, "Sharon Keller re-elected to Texas criminal appeals court; Geraldine Miller leads in education board race." It's written by Terrence Stutz.
Texas Court of Criminal Appeals Presiding Judge Sharon Keller won re-election Tuesday night, turning aside a challenge from a Democratic opponent who tried to capitalize on the Republican’s ethics problems.
Results showed the state’s two highest courts — the Texas Supreme Court and the Court of Criminal Appeals — would remain all Republican.
Despite the GOP lock on the two courts, Democratic defense lawyer Keith Hampton took on Keller, targeting her for well-publicized missteps. Among those was her decision to not allow a last-minute appeal from a death row inmate because the court’s office in Austin closed at 5 p.m. — an action that drew a rebuke from the State Commission on Judicial Conduct.
The races for two other spots on the Court of Criminal Appeals were won by GOP incumbents Barbara P. Hervey and Elsa Alcala. Both were opposed by Libertarians.
