Two candidates who faced off two years ago in the 26th Judicial District Circuit Court Division III judicial race plan to run again this year, the Jackson Sun reports. Judge Nathan Pride, who won the 2012 election to replace Judge Roger Page when he was appointed to the Court of Criminal Appeals, will again face Jackson attorney Edward Martindale. Unlike the 2012 race, which included four other candidates in a non-partisan contest, this year’s August election will be partisan. Martindale is running as a Republican and Pride as an independent.
