An editorial from the Jackson Sun denounces Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey’s plan to raise money to influence the Aug. 7 retention election of three Supreme Court Justices.  “An independent judicial system is critical to law and order in our state and in our nation,” the newspaper writes. “We all have seen the consequences of radical political agendas, which can be illogical and even destructive. We love a good political fight, but the courts are not the place to have one. Ramsey is wrong to use politics and big money to oust state judges for political reasons and gain.”
