Judge will not order Libertarian back on ballot

Posted: Updated:

A federal judge has denied an effort by the Libertarian Party of Ohio to get its gubernatorial candidate back on the ballot for the May primary.
    
Ohio's elections chief disqualified that candidate, Charlie Earl, and the Libertarian candidate for attorney general after their nominating petitions were challenged.
    
The party asked a judge to order that Earl be included on the ballot. The judge on Wednesday turned down that request.
    
The party immediately requested a stay of that ruling and indicated it will appeal the decision. Attorneys for Earl and the Libertarian Party didn't immediately respond to messages seeking comment.
    
Earl's candidacy would have the potential to draw votes from Republican Gov. John Kasich (KAY'-sik) as the incumbent faces likely Democratic challenger Ed FitzGerald, the Cuyahoga (ky-uh-HOH'-guh) County executive.
