ZANESVILLE, Ohio- The race for Ohio Supreme Court makes a stop at the Muskingum County Fair.

Appellate Court Judge Pat Dewine says

“I’m a constitutional conservative” “I believe a judge should apply the law as it’s written not legislate from the bench.”

Judge Pat Fischer also made an appearance at the fair. Fischer is also running for Supreme Court Justice.

“I used to be on the Hamilton County Mental Health and Recovery Services board,” Judge Fischer said. “I know from talking to the sheriff you guys have the same problems we do. You got to have judges who understand that drug addiction and mental health problems.”

Fischer is running against democrat Cynthia Rice, while Dewine faces democrat John P. O’Donnell.
