In Oklahoma, four justices on the Supreme Court were up for reten­tion—­Douglas Combs, James Edmond­son, Noma Gurich, and Yvonne Kauger. After the Ohio Cham­ber of Commerce released its first-ever ratings of Supreme Court justices, and all four candid­ates received low marks, a group called Yes for Fair and Impar­tial Judges was formed to support reten­tion. This group ran the only tele­vi­sion ad in the race, which cost $450,000 and was aired the week before the elec­tion. 

The four justice were retained in the Novem­ber 6th elec­tion.
