A friend of mine here in the Portlandia area is fond of suggesting a study of the people who are appointed to judgeships. He points out that judges nearly always retire mid-term, with the result that their replacements are appointed (by the governor, I presume) mid-term and then run as incumbents at the next election. Usually unopposed. The process is obviously open to political manipulation.
