Libertarian candidate for governor, Charlie Earl,
bounced from primary
COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Secretary of State Jon Husted on Friday ruled that signatures on nominating petitions for Libertarian gubernatorial candidate Charlie Earl and his running mate Sherry Clark were invalid and struck their names from the May primary ballot.
Husted also upheld a challenge to the Libertarian’s candidate for attorney general, Stephen Linnabarry, removing him from the ballot.
The decision means the Libertarian Party of Ohio will not have any candidates appearing on the primary ballot in May, although write in candidates for auditor and secretary of state successfully qualified as write-in candidates.
