One Republican Running for U.S. Senate in Massachusetts Expects to Spend Over $100,000 on Ballot Access PetitionFebruary 12th, 2013
Gabriel Gomez, one of the Republicans planning to run for U.S. Senate in the June Massachusetts special election, has signed a contract with a paid petitioning firm to get him on the primary ballot. The 10,000 valid signatures are due February 27. See this story, which says that the contract will be in excess of $100,000. The paid petitioning company, Spoonworks, is run by Harold Hubschman, who was an expert witness on the side of the state of Illinois in last month’s lawsuit over the constitutionality of Illinois ballot access in special elections.
