Attorney Scott Kerner, the older brother of Palm Beach County Commissioner Dave Kerner, has opened a 2018 campaign against former State Attorney Michael McAuliffe for an open Circuit Court judgeship.

Scott Kerner and McAuliffe are seeking the Group 13 seat of Judge David French, who is not running for re-election next year.

McAuliffe opened a campaign in May and through Oct. 31 had raised $31,180 from donors and put $200,000 of his own money into his campaign account.

Dave Kerner, acting as spokesman for his brother’s candidacy, said first-time candidate Scott Kerner’s supporters hope to raise $250,000 to $300,000 for his campaign.
