“Chief justice ‘very concerned’ about November’s retention election”

Radio Iowa: “Four of the seven justices on the Iowa Supreme Court will be listed on November’s election ballot for a “retention” election and the court’s chief justice says he’s ‘very concerned.’ In 2010, three Iowa Supreme Court justices, including the former chief justice, were voted off the court after a campaign was launched against them because of the court’s 2009 ruling on same-sex marriage. The three justices appointed to replace them are on this November’s ballot for another retention vote, along with another justice who’s been on the court since 2003.”
