Carol Ann Campbell may have died in 2008, but the Phadelphia Democratic Party remains as loyal to her in death as life.

Dem Party picks candidates for judge


Carol Ann Campbell may have died in 2008, but the Phadelphia Democratic Party remains as loyal to her in death as life.

So does Bob Brady, the congressman, party chairman and confidant of Campbell, who served as the party's secretary and a city councilwoman.

Among those Common Pleas Court candidates the party decided to endorse Wednesday night are Edward Wright and Joyce Eubanks. Wright was Campbell's chief of staff on Council; Eubanks was her chief legislative aide, and was appointed briefly by former Gov. Rendell as a judge.

There are 10 open seats for Common Pleas Court. Nearly 40 candidates filed paperwork to seek a seat, though some withdrew earlier Wednesday.

Other candidates the party will endorse are: Angelo Foglietta, Carolyn Nichols, Scott O'Keefe, Roger Gordon, Maria McLaughlin, Charles Erlich, Marvin Williams and Sean Kennedy.
