DALLAS -- Voters will elect eight new judges to fill spots in the Texas Supreme Court and the Court of Criminal Appeals.

One race features a Democratic state district judge who walked across the state to challenge incumbent Supreme Court Justice Don Willett's bid for a full term.

The race between William "Bill" Moody, a state district judge in El Paso, and Willett was one of two competitive ones.

The 40-year-old Willett was appointed by Gov. Rick Perry. The 56-year-old Moody met voters during his 1,000-mile campaign walk.
