According to Texas Monthly, when Keller was asked in a preelection interview if she was bound to follow the law, even if it meant an unjust result. “Absolutely ... Who is going to determine what justice is? Me? I think justice is achieved by following the law”, she replied. “She's extremely religious ... [S]he believes strongly that God is on her side", said one colleague. "Her commitment to her religion was enormous”, stated another friend.
In 2000, Keller was challenged in the Republican primary election for the "presiding judge" slot, which she assumed the next year, by sitting Judge Tom Price of Dallas. Keller prevailed, 122,958 (54.8 percent) to Price's 101,514 votes (45.2 percent), but Price remained on the court until his retirement in 2015.
