Citizens for Judicial Excellence was founded for one purpose: to improve the quality of the judges in the busiest of our court systems by offering voters actual choices in judicial elections. CJE fulfills its mission by recruiting, encouraging, educating, supporting, and financing a select number of highly qualified candidates whose election — by objective standards — would truly improve the quality of the bench.
Since its inception, CJE has grown into the most effective and influential political force in the legal community. In fact, CJE is recognized as the most highly organized, sophisticated, well-funded, and professional judicial-election PAC in the country. Click to learn more about CJE's Mission.
