Texas remains one of the few states that maintains a system of partisan judicial selection. A tweet by Gov. Greg Abbott earlier this year signaled his willingness to support "an independent judiciary free from politics." Although Republicans continue to dominate the state's judiciary, Democrats in the last election picked up seats on appeals courts where they previously had none. Any reform must win the approval of both parties as a two-thirds majority in each chamber is required for the constitutional amendment needed to change the system. Should Texas judicial elections be nonpartisan?
