The study, sponsored by the American Constitution Society and designed by experienced independent empirical researchers, comes in response to growing concern among the public—and judges themselves—about increased politicization of judicial elections. In the 15 years since the last significant collection of data on judicial elections was assembled, fundraising for judicial campaigns has skyrocketed, more than doubling, from $83.3 million in 1990–1999 to $206.9 million in 2000–2009.
