(Harrisburg) --  Five Republican candidates for the Pennsylvania Supreme Court all say they have the experience, integrity and character to serve as justices and vowed politics would not influence their decisions. 

Attending the event at Widener Law School in Harrisburg were Supreme Court Justice Correale Stevens, Superior Court judges Cheryl Allen and Judith Olson, Adams County Judge Mike George and Montour County District Attorney Rebecca Warren. 

Warren, the only non-judge in the group, said in her closing statement that while her opponents have impressive resumes, so did two justices recently forced to step down from the state's top court because of scandals. 

Twelve candidates are vying for nominations in the May 19 primary.

The top three vote-getters in each party will compete in the general election for an unprecedented three open seats.
