Chicago Federation of Labor announces judicial endorsements

Actually, as Rich Miller in The Capitol Fax Blog points out, the CFL made endorsements in a number of races, judicial and otherwise, but Mr. Miller chose not to include the judicial endorsements in his post today. So I'll put the judicial endorsements here.

Click here for the full list of CFL-endorsed candidates in handy .pdf format. This link should take you to the CFL's press release and another version of the endorsement list.

James N. O'Hara - 14th Subcircuit – Henry Vacancy

Anna Helen Demacopoulos - 15th Subcircuit – Judgeship A

Unless this list is amended -- and it may be, of course -- it appears that the CFL did not make an endorsement in at least one contested primary, the race for the Bush vacancy in the 5th Subcircuit. Also, James N. O'Hara is unopposed in his bid to replace Judge James F. Henry -- but then, the CFL also decided to endorse Justice Anne M. Burke in her uncontested race.
