Judge Molberg Wins Highest Margin among 2014 Dallas County Democrats
Published Tuesday, November 4, 2014
DALLAS (Nov. 4, 2014) - Judge Ken Molberg, who was appointed as the Democratic nominee for the Fifth District Court of Appeals, Place 5, upon the resignation of Justice Jim Moseley, achieved the highest margin of victory among local Democratic candidates in the 2014 General Election. Judge Molberg earned 54.6% of the vote in Dallas County. In this Court of Appeals District that also includes Collin, Grayson, Hunt, Kaufman and Rockwall counties, the Republican nominee was ultimately successful.
"I campaigned to bring independence and trial experience to the Court of Appeals. I also wanted to be sure the Democratic Party contested this open position, and I am proud to have represented the party on the ballot and helped the team in 2014," said Judge Molberg.
Texas law allows district-level judges to run for other judicial offices without giving up their benches, which allowed Judge Molberg to join the 2014 Democratic slate without the Democratic Party losing an elected official. Judge Molberg continues to serve as Presiding Judge of the 95th Civil District Court in Dallas County and is seeking re-election to a third term in 2016.
