California Republican Mayor who Won Fax Case Still Fails to Get on Ballot

John Mirisch, who wants to be on the ballot for California State Senate, 26th district, appears to have failed to qualify. He needed 40 valid signatures and only has 38. See this story. Earlier Mirisch had won a Superior Court order saying his declaration of candidacy is valid, even though it was faxed.

Mirisch would have been the only Republican in the race. He could still file as a write-in. He is the Mayor of Beverly Hills. UPDATE: on March 26, a Superior Court ruled that Mirisch can’t be on the ballot because three of the signers did not personally write their address on the petition. Instead, the spouse of the signers filled in the address. See this story.
