N.C. Supreme Court Justice Robin Hudson has announced she will run for re-election next year.

"I am running for reelection because I know the challenges that people face every day," Hudson said in a statement. "Challenges with their jobs, their families, and their property. Challenges with their safety, kids, and schools. These are the things people want a judge to decide fairly, and these are the issues that I decide fairly in every case that comes before me.''

She was endorsed by former N.C. Chief Justice Burley Mitchell, five other former Supreme Court justices and seven former appeals court justices.

Hudson, 61, is a Georgia native who grew up there and in Greensboro. She graduated from Yale University and UNC law school. In 2000 she was the first woman elected to the N.C. Court of Appeals who had not been first appointed.

In 2006, she was elected to the Supreme Court, winning the seat that had been held by Justice George Wainwright, who was retiring.
