U.S. District Court Judge Pamela Reeves told the Knoxville-Knox County League of Women Voters that contested judicial elections this year will be critical votes, Knoxnews reports. In her first speech since being sworn in as federal judge, Reeves urged voters to look carefully at a candidate's background instead of party labels. “Look at qualifications and look at experience,” she told the group. Reeves also noted that the August election “has the potential for one of the most controversial votes this year" because of a challenge being waged against three incumbent state Supreme Court justices.
