"In eight years the military commissions ... put three people on trial. ... Meanwhile, the federal courts, our Article III, regular legal court system, has put dozens of terrorists in jail. ... The suggestion that somehow a military commission is the way to go isn't borne out."

Campaign Money Data

Two types of spending have transformed state Supreme Court elections in the last decade.

Candidate fundraising more than doubled,  from $83.3 million nationally in 1990-1999 to $206.9 million in 2000-2009, as Supreme Court candidates were thrust into a financial arms race.

Independent TV campaigns, waged by special interest groups and party organizations outside of the candidates' control, often have outspent the candidates on the ballot.
