On September 15, the Ohio Libertarian Party asked a U.S. District Court to place its gubernatorial ticket on the November ballot. This time, the request is based on new evidence showing that the process by which the ticket was removed from the party’s primary ballot was corrupt.
Meanwhile, a Columbus Dispatch poll published September 14 shows these results for the gubernatorial race: Republican incumbent John Kasich 59%; Democrat Ed Fitzgerald 29%; Green Anita Rios 3%; undecided 10%. If the Green Party nominee does receive 2%, the Green Party’s party status will be extended for four more years.
The Democratic nominee is performing very poorly because of recent revelations about his personal life.
