The U.S. District Court hearing on whether the Ohio statewide Libertarian candidates should be restored to the Libertarian primary ballot is extending into a two-day hearing. The hearing held Thursday afternoon, March 13, will be continued on Friday morning, March 14, starting at 10 a.m.
The attorney for the Libertarian candidates is hoping to question the attorney for one of the individuals who filed the ballot access challenge. It is not yet determined whether that will be allowed. Such testimony presumably would reveal information about the connection between the Ohio Republican Party and one of the three challengers. If the Libertarians had not been challenged, they would now be on the ballot, because originally the Secretary of State put them on the ballot.
