Judicial Campaigns and Elections: Minnesota
Unlike candidates for other state offices, there are no statutory limits on campaign contributions to judicial candidates. However, according to a 2009 amendment to the code of judicial conduct, judicial candidates' campaign committees may not solicit or accept individual or organizational contributions that exceed, in the aggregate, $2000 in an election year and $500 in a non-election year.
In 2008, the Midwest Democracy Network and the Justice at Stake Campaign released a report on recent judicial elections in five Midwestern states, including Minnesota. Click here to read “The New Politics of Judicial Elections in the Great Lakes States, 2000-2008.”
