WA Lawsuit to Remove Republican Party Fails

Ballot Access News reports that a “Washington State Court Determines that Republicans Did Have a Nominee in 2010, so it Retained its Qualified Status.”

The full article is posted here.

The court’s decision was also covered by Mike Baker of The Associated Press in an article published by, among others, the Seattle Times, here.

According to the above article, John Mills, the Libertarian Party’s attorney, suggested third parties could use the precedent established by this case to gain major party ballot access by “quietly” nominating a major party candidate this year, and then demanding major party status in a subsequent election by having met the measure of having had a candidate who received 5 percent or more of the vote in a prior election.
