USE OF WORDS "REELECT" AND
IN CAMPAIGN MATERIAL
Opinion No. 135 (1990)
QUESTION: May a judge, who sought reelection and was defeated, use
the words "reelect" or "keep" on campaign material in a subsequent
campaign, against an incumbent, for election to another court?
ANSWER: No. The Committee concludes that the use of such words in campaign material would violate the Canon 7(2) provision that any statement of a judicial candidate's record should be such as can withstand the closest scrutiny as to accuracy, candor, and fairness.
