CQJ evaluated both Republican and Democratic candidates who will appear on the primary ballot, and all those endorsed took part in the CQJ's thorough evaluation process.

CQJ surveyed the candidates regarding their credentials, including the breadth and depth of their professional experience, expertise and certifications, and the most significant cases handled by the candidates during their careers. CQJ members also personally interviewed all of the participating candidates. The committee evaluated both Republican and Democratic candidates who will appear on the primary ballot, inviting each of the 89 candidates to participate in a thorough evaluation process. A total of 46 candidates participated in the process.
