MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Three incumbents appointed by Governor Tim Pawlenty won new terms on the Minnesota Supreme Court on Tuesday.
Chief Justice Lorie Skjerven Gildea turned back a challenge from Dan Griffith, a private practice attorney from International Falls who had made four unsuccessful runs previously for the Minnesota Court of Appeals.
Associate Justice G. Barry Anderson overcame the best-known challenger, Dean Barkley, a close political associate of Governor Jesse Ventura who served a brief term in the U.S. Senate in 2002.
Associate Justice David Stras kept his seat in his first test before the voters. Stras was a University of Minnesota law professor and former clerk to U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. He defeated Tim Tingelstad, a Bemidji magistrate.
