Eastern Iowans make top nine in Supreme Court vacancies


DES MOINES (KWWL)-- Two Eastern Iowans are in the running for a seat on the Iowa Supreme Court. Following interviews by the state's Judicial Nomination Commission this week, nine nominees vying for three vacancies have been submitted to Gov. Terry Branstad.

Here is a list of the candidates for justices: Robert Blink, of West Des Moines; Arthur Gamble, of Clive; John Gray, of Sioux City; Steven Lawyer, of New Virginia; Edward Mansfield, of Des Moines; Michael Mullins, of Washington; Angela Onwuachi-Willig of Grinnell; Thomas Waterman of Pleasant Valley; and Bruce Zager, of Waterloo.

60 candidates interviewed this week. Gov. Branstad has 30 days to select three appointees to the Iowa Supreme Court.

The positions became vacant after voters last November ousted three justices for their role in a ruling legalizing same-sex marriage in Iowa.
