Carrie Austin is billed as a guest of honor. She is going to be carried in by the 58 circuits who voted for Evans out of fear that she was going to "retaliate" against them. What they forget is that Austin and the black caucus could t get a single black judge sitting by appointment elected in the March primary.

True, but the black wards are responsible for carrying the load for all of the retention judges - - black and white.
