Chris Bonneau on Judicial Elections

AIR DATE: October 20, 2010

Politicians like Assembly Speaker Barbara Buckley have been pushing for "Yes on Question 1" - a ballot measure that would overturn our current system of electing judges. Supporters say it chooses judges based on merit, rather than the ballot box. But one professor says there's some wisdom to keeping the election system. Chris Bonneau offers his insights for preserving how Nevada chooses its judges. And he'll be speaking at UNLV on Wednesday night.
