Justices Make Case for Retention with Stops in Nashville, Blountville

Tennessee's three Supreme Court justices facing retention elections continued to fight back against a campaign to oust them with just two days left before election day. Justices Connie Clark and Sharon Lee took to Nashville's Public Square yesterday to lambaste attacks orchestrated from within the state and from out-of-state, the Tennessean reports. The pair were joined by former U.S. Attorney Ed Yarbrough and former Tennessee Supreme Court Justice William Koch, both Republicans who said they support retaining the three justices. Chief Justice Gary Wade made a stop at the Sullivan County Courthouse where retired U.S. Rep. Bill Jenkins, a Republican from Rogersville, defended Wade against claims that he is liberal and anti-business, the Times News reports.

As campaigning wraps up tomorrow, Justice Wade will spend election night with friends and family in East Tennessee, while Justices Clark and Lee will be at Jed's Sports Bar and Grille in Nashville, 114 28th Ave. South, for an informal gathering with friends and supporters.
