Chief Justice Bill Waller Jr. says it's legal for PACs to give to judicial campaigns, but he doesn't know if he has received the contributions because other people are handling his finances.
Banks and Waller face off in the Nov. 6 election for an eight-year term that begins in January 2014. They spoke Monday at a forum hosted by the Stennis Institute of Government and the Capitol press corps.
Waller says drug courts save the state millions of dollars a year. Banks says he helped push the legislation creating drug courts.
