From the Associated Press via Centre Daily Times:
Libertarian Party candidates are submitting nominating petitions to run for Pennsylvania governor and for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Arlen Specter.
A Department of State spokeswoman said Monday that Libertarian Douglas Jamison submitted enough signatures to make the ballot for Senate, while fellow party member Marakay Rogers has enough signatures to quality for the governor’s race.
They’ll be on the ballot unless there’s a successful legal challenge to their petitions.
Third-party candidates have until the close of business Monday to submit their nominating petitions to qualify for the Nov. 2 election.
Republican and Democratic candidates for those seats were selected in last month’s primary.
Ballot Access News also reports that “The Libertarians believe their validity rate is high, because so many of the signatures were collected either at the polls on primary election day May 18, or collected door-to-door.”
The Green Party also turned in signatures for its statewide candidates today. BAN reports that the LP turned in about 24,000 petitions, and the GP about 19,400. The number required is a little over 19,000.
