Libertarian's request to be on Ohio ballot denied

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The Ohio Supreme Court has denied a request from a Libertarian candidate who was seeking to force the state's elections chief to place his name on primary ballots.

Last month, Secretary of State Jon Husted (HYOO'-sted) disqualified attorney general candidate Steven Linnabary from the May 6 ballot. Linnabary's nominating petitions were successfully challenged on two grounds: that a signature gatherer failed to comply with Ohio law requiring that he be either Libertarian or politically independent and another requirement that he disclose his employer.

Linnabary's attorneys said the man who protested the petitions lacked the standing to do so. They also argued that the state law does not require certain petition circulators to disclose employment because they are independent contractors.

The high court said Thursday that Husted reasonably interpreted the law.
