The first African-American woman to sit on the Ohio Supreme Court will campaign to keep her seat.

The Ohio Democratic Party says Justice Yvette McGee-Brown plans to formally announce her bid Monday afternoon at a YWCA facility in Columbus. She’s one of three justices in races this year.

Outgoing Democratic governor Ted Strickland picked McGee-Brown in 2010 to fill a vacancy created by the election of Justice Maureen O’Connor as chief justice.
