TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP)
Civil rights advocates made a pitch for Circuit Judge James
Perry of Sanford at meeting with Crist on a variety of issues
Thursday. Of the four nominees, Perry is the only one who is black.
Conservative groups, though, are lobbying on behalf of Appeal
Judge Alan Lawson of Daytona Beach.
Crist had urged the Supreme Court Judicial Nominating Commission
to send him a diverse list of nominees.
The other two finalists are Circuit Judge Debra Steinberg Nelson
of Sanford, and Orlando lawyer Dan Gerber. Nelson is the only
female nominee.
