Five county judges in Hillsborough elected without opposition

TAMPA — Five Hillsborough County Court judges were elected without opposition Friday, while two candidates will face off this fall for another judgeship.

Judges Jennifer Gabbard, Eric Myers, John Conrad, Margaret Taylor Courtney and Lawrence Lefler were unopposed.

Norman Cannella Jr. and Chris Nash are vying for Group 12. Nash received the most campaign contributions at roughly $100,000, with Cannella close behind at around $80,000, records show.

The races for candidates running for state circuit judgeships were already set with a qualifying deadline last month.
