In an editorial, the Daily News Journal condemned efforts "to oust three state Supreme Court justices whose primary offense appears to be that former Democratic Gov. Phil Bredesen appointed them to the high court." The editorial board writes "we agree with the TBA and think the state’s high court should have an appropriate distance from the daily tumult of political considerations. Justices should follow the canon of the law rather than the latest poll numbers." The paper continues, urging voters to "look at these elections and decide what is in the best interest of the state regardless of partisan ramifications."
