Arkansas Republican Nominee Hopes Arkansas Supreme Court Will Reinstate His Candidacy

Published on October 30, 2010, by in General.

On October 29, Tim Fite, Republican nominee for Arkansas State House, 83rd district, asked the State Supreme Court to rule that he is entitled to be a candidate in next week’s election.  On October 27 a Pulaski County Circuit Court had ruled that he is ineligible to run, because of a misdemeanor conviction in 1984.  Because ballots have already been printed, if the State Supreme Court does not intervene, voters will see a notice at the polls that votes for Hite will not be counted.  See this story.

The incumbent, a Republican, is not running for re-election.  If Hite cannot run, the Democratic nominee, Leslee Post, will be unopposed.
