Those other races in Ohio

President Bush seems to have won reelection on a tight but apparently insurmountable lead in Ohio. But down-ballot, three contested Supreme Court races were big wins for supporters of tort reform in the Buckeye State. Ohioans elected Thomas Moyer Chief Justice, and Judith Lanzinger and Terrence O'Donnell Justices, of the Ohio Supreme Court. Each faced well-financed trial-lawyer-backed opponents in a multimillion dollar campaign that was another major front for tort reform.
