Libertarian candidates off the ballot
The Libertarian Party’s slate of statewide candidates has officially been sent packing.
The party’s candidates for senate, governor and lieutenant governor all ended their bids to stay on the ballot Wednesday, succumbing to legal challenges spearheaded by the state GOP. Coupled with the withdrawal of a Green Party candidate for senate and another candidate for governor, the latest exits mean there will be no third-party candidates on the statewide ballot in November.
Senate hopeful Douglas Jamison, gubernatorial candidate Marakay Rogers and lieutenant governor aspirant Kat Valleley all conceded that they didn’t have enough valid signatures to gain ballot access, their lawyer told The Associated Press.
