All Five Kansas Supreme Court Justices Retained

Kansas Supreme Court Chief Justice Lawton Nuss spoke to reporters at the Eldridge Hotel in Lawrence early Wednesday morning when it became clear that all five justices had survived their retention elections.  He briefly thanked Kansas voters for their support of the state's highest court.

All five members of the Kansas Supreme Court who faced retention elections will remain on the bench.  An effort to oust four of the justices failed Tuesday night.  Chief Justice Lawton Nuss was one of those four justices.  He spoke to the media early this (WED) morning and thanked Kansas voters for their support.

Four of the justices on the ballot were appointed by previous governors and were targeted by conservatives, abortion opponents and critics of their rulings in some death penalty cases. 

The five retained justices include Chief Justice Lawton Nuss and justices Carol Beier, Dan Biles, Marla Luckert and Caleb Stegall.
