Summary of Judicial Endorsements from BlueBroward members, Newspapers

One reason I didn’t make it to early voting is I’ve been dreading sorting out who to back in the judicial races. Fortunately, several BlueBroward members have shared their picks, which I’m sharing along with the editorial board recommendations from the Miami Herald and the Sun-Sentinel (unless I’m missing something, the Sentinel only made recommendations in a handful of the judicial races). I compiled this list largely for my own purposes, to see how much overlap and agreement there was.

Here are the BlueBroward members who shared their lists, with links to their blog entries. You may want to refer back to their original notes to see which choices they felt most strongly about. Henry Rose also discloses which ones he’s been consulting for, as opposed to recommending purely as a voter.

One thought on “Summary of Judicial Endorsements from BlueBroward members, Newspapers”

  1. I had also recommended Destry and Rebollo, but you left my name off of those. Please do not go by the Herald endorsements. Their board is truly uninformed. They only went by their brief interviews with candidates without any other background investigation or assessment. In Group 20, it’s very important that you vote for Gottlieb and not Schaet. Also, O’Connor has too many complaints and scandals, so I recommended Sokoloff. That was a very tough choice, but the incumbent, O’Connor, got all of the endorsements.
