Tribune endorsement questionniare links -- Countywide judicial races

Herewith links to the candidate questionnaire responses posted by the Chicago Tribune. In this post we will look at candidates for the eight countywide vacancies in Cook County. If a candidate's name is not linked, it means that the candidate, as of this writing, has not yet responded to the Tribune.

Please note: Each of the persons listed on this page -- indeed, nearly every single Cook County judicial candidate is a candidate in the Democratic primary. There are two exceptions -- two Republicans are battling for the right to oppose the successful Democratic candidate for the McCarthy vacancy. However, neither Maureen Masterson Pulia nor Michaela Nolan Ryan has yet responded to the Tribune questionnaire.
