Florida Supreme Court Candidate Frank Jimenez
Hispanic judicial candidates who are perceived to be judicial conservatives attract the special wrath of the Left, as former D.C. Circuit nominee Miguel Estrada can readily attest. (See This Week for March 6, 2003.) In Florida, the state nominating commission’s nomination of Frank Jimenez as one of five candidates for Governor Crist to choose among to appoint to the state supreme court has triggered the usual outbursts. In this op-ed, former state supreme court justice Raoul G. Cantero III amply defends Jimenez from the attacks. Let’s hope that Gov. Crist stands strong.
