- Brody Law Office / Idaho Legislature
- Robyn Brody and Sen. Curt McKenzie
Early Tuesday morning, the Idaho State Bar released its survey of the two candidates vying for a seat on the Idaho Supreme Court: Twin Falls attorney Robyn Brody and Canyon County Republican Sen. Curt McKenzie.
According to the association of legal professionals, Brody outscores McKenzie by more than a two-to-one margin.
In May, Brody and McKenzie emerged from a pack of four candidates for the opportunity to succeed Justice Jim Jones on the Idaho Supreme Court. The runoff was triggered because none of the four secured more than 50 percent of the vote in the May primary.
The race has attracted much attention at the Idaho Statehouse, where McKenzie represents District 13, which includes Nampa. He's also chairman of the all-powerful Idaho Senate State Affairs Committee. Because of his judicial candidacy, McKenzie will be absent from the Legislature when it reconvenes in 2017.
Overall, Brody scored a rating of 3.65 (between 'above average' and 'exceeds expectations') versus McKenzie's rating of 1.86 (between 'does not meet expectations' and 'average').
The survey indicates there were 440 responses from members of the Idaho State Bar, with the overwhelming majority coming the 4th Judicial District, which includes Ada, Boise, Elmore and Valley counties.
