Gov Jeb Bush may think he should be appointing those 55 newly created judgeships, rather than have them elected (
now the subject of a lawsuit
) but he's still playing in those races. In June he sent $25 to the campaign of Pinellas county judge candidate Susan Bedinghaus, an assistant attorney general, former Jeb appointment to the local judicial nominating committee and wife of ex Pinellas GOP chairman Paul Bedinghaus. No, it's not a hefty check but then the governor's net worth isn't what it used to be.
