Better Courts Now Endorsed Candidates Vow To Carry Out God's Will
A few months back, I wrote a post about a new right-wing group that had formed in California for the purpose of taking control of the state's court system. Many of those involved had been highly active in the Prop. 8 fight and saw this new effort, called Better Courts Now, as a way of making sure that issues like Prop. 8 never succeed in the courts by "unifying the moral vote" and electing judges with a right-wing agenda.
Well, the election for state judges in California takes place on June 8 and Better Courts Now has rolled out its slate of candidates:
A group of conservative attorneys say they are on a mission from God to unseat four California judges in a rare challenge that is turning a traditionally snooze-button election into what both sides call a battle for the integrity of U.S. courts.
Vowing to be God's ambassadors on the bench, the four San Diego Superior Court candidates are backed by pastors, gun enthusiasts, and opponents of abortion and same-sex marriages.
"We believe our country is under assault and needs Christian values," said Craig Candelore, a family law attorney who is one of the group's candidates. "Unfortunately, God has called upon us to do this only with the judiciary."
The Better Courts Now candidates accused the bar of being swayed by politics. Candelore said a victory would mark only the beginning: "If we can take our judiciary, we can take our legislature and our executive branch."
Better Courts Now has posted campaign videos from each of its endorsed candidates, including Candelore:
