Abstract:

Public Campaign Financing in North Carolina Judiciary: Balancing The Scales, analyzes North Carolina's judicial public campaign financing law, which provides full public financing for the general election campaigns of Court of Appeals and Supreme Court candidates who meet certain qualifications. Balancing the Scales concludes that North Carolina's judicial campaign finance program is a model of reform and could become even stronger with additional adjustments.
