From Ballot Access News:
The Tennessee Green Party has placed Howard Switzer on the November 2010 ballot as an independent candidate for Governor. Tennessee has no other statewide races this year.
If the pending ballot access lawsuit wins, it is very likely the court will order that Switzer be put on the ballot as the Green Party nominee, instead of being labeled as an independent. The lawsuit was filed on January 23, 2008, in U.S. District Court. It has moved slowly, but all the evidence and the briefs have been submitted. The other two parties in the lawsuit, the Constitution and Libertarian Parties, have nominees for various district office this year on the ballot as independents, but they aren’t running anyone for Governor.
