There are Democratic candidates running in the other two Supreme Court seats that are up for election this year. Rhonda Chambers, a Birmingham lawyer, will face the GOP candidate, Judge Kelli Wise, who currently serves on the Criminal Court of Appeals, for Place 1. Jefferson County Circuit Judge Mac Parsons will face the GOP nominee for Place 3. The Republican nominee will be decided in the primary. The incumbent, Tom Parker, is facing two opponents in the primary. They are Birmingham lawyer Erin Johnson and Elmore County Assistant District Attorney, James Houts. In the race for Place 2, a Republican primary candidate, Dothan lawyer Tracy Cary, is facing Justice Mike Bolin, the incumbent. It’s rather unusual to have primary races in Supreme Court races, but this year is different. Most observers believe, however, that all of the races will really be run looking toward the general election in the fall. The only exception would appear to be the primary race for Place 2 on the Court.
