WILMINGTON, N.C. (AP) - Candidates for appellate courts often have trouble getting voters interested in their races. So current and former judges on the statewide ballot are traveling around North Carolina to talk about their races and the judicial system.

Four Supreme Court and Appeals Court candidates are on board for a tour starting Monday in Wilmington.

A campaign spokeswoman says at least two of them will visit each of the 18 towns and cities they intend to reach by Friday. The participants are Supreme Court Associate Justice Bob Hunter, Supreme Court hopefuls Eric Levinson and Mike Robinson and Court of Appeals candidate John Tyson.

Appellate court races are officially non-partisan. All tour candidates are registered Republicans.

The North Carolina Association of Educators last week endorsed the opponents of the candidates on the tour.
