Bert Brandenburg, executive director of Justice at Stake, and Texas Supreme Court Justice Wallace Jefferson will appear on MSNBC tomorrow between 2:30 and 3 p.m. Central for a discussion about a new study showing the impact of special interest spending in judicial races. The study -- a collaboration between Justice at Stake, the Brennan Center for Justice at NYU School of Law, and the National Institute on Money in State Politics -- looks at the first full election cycle since the U.S. Supreme Court's Citizens United decision, and how special interest groups took advantage of the ability to spend freely in state judicial races.
