(Toledo News Now) - Toledo City Councilman Jack Ford won't be running for Ohio Senate this November.

All four members of the Lucas County Elections Board voted to bump Ford from the ballot because he filed as an Independent.

Ford, a former Toledo mayor and former state representative has only ever voted as a registered Democrat. He filed as an Independent to run against incumbent Democrat State Sen. Edna Brown.

It's currently unknown if Ford will appeal the decision to the Ohio Secretary of State.
