“Linda Yanez discusses Supreme Court race” (2/4/2008). She discusses her background, how she came to run in a contested primary, why she is running for the Court, and the public view of the Court.
“Susan Criss talks about the Texas Supreme Court” (2/6/2008). She talks about campaigning, the Court’s docket, the recent BP mandamus decision, and why she is running for the Court.
These interviews appear as part of a podcast series on the newspaper’s Texas Politics blog.
