    Hey There,

    Critical state Supreme Courts seats are on the ballot in North Carolina this year, and political observers are recognizing the monumental impact these races will have this election cycle. The Democrats' success in redistricting cases across the country earlier this year was a product of the tens of millions of dollars they've spent in recent years stacking key state Supreme Courts with their allies who are determined to draw maps from the bench in favor of liberals. Fox News outlined the work of the Republican State Leadership Committee's Judicial Fairness Initiative to fight back and win these key seats in November.

    As Fox News reported,

    In North Carolina, Democrats have a 4-3 advantage on the state's high court, which could change if Republicans win even one of the two high court races in November. That could frustrate Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper, noted Troy Shelton, an appellate lawyer and business litigation attorney in Raleigh, who watches the court.

    "North Carolina has a Republican legislature and Democratic governor," Shelton told Fox News Digital. "When there have been a separation of powers arguments, the Democratic Supreme Court has delivered victories for Gov. Cooper."

    Democratic Justice Sam Ervin IV, the grandson of former U.S. Sen. Sam Ervin Jr., who ran the Senate Watergate hearings, is facing Republican Trey Allen, general counsel for the state's administrative office of the courts. Also, Democratic Justice Robin Hudson is retiring and two appeals court judges, Democrat Lucy Inman and Republican Richard Dietz, are running to fill the vacancy.
