The editorial board of the Chattanooga Times Free Press has endorsed the retention of three Tennessee Supreme Court justices in the August general election. The editors write that while they understand why Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey would launch a campaign to replace the three with Republican justices, “his reasons don’t measure up to the precedent for retaining justices unless they do something egregiously wrong or embarrassing.” Their conclusion? “Without more evidence to the contrary, our suggestion is to retain the justices.”
