The following audio report examines judicial elections in Chicago. The campaign of Ricardo Lugo, who is running for the judgeship in the Sixth Sub-Circuit, is used as a case study. Interviews with Ricardo Lugo, campaign manager Orlando Lopez, supporter Teo Gonzales, Ann Lousin of the John Marshall Law School, and Michael Rich of the Chicago Appleseed Fund for Justice. Thanks to all who participated.
CORRECTION: An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated that no candidate in the Sixth Sub-Circuit race had received the support of the Cook County Democratic Party. Beatriz Santiago has received the Party's endorsement. The error has been corrected in the above version of the report.
