Jay Paterno removed from Pennsylvania lt. governor ballot
Jay Paterno has had his request to have his name removed from the ballot for Pennsylvania lieutenant governor granted by a state judge.
Jay Paterno's abbreviated run for the Pennsylvania lieutenant governor's office is over.
Per the Associated Press, Paterno missed the party deadline to withdraw from the Democratic primary ballot for lieutenant governor, and requested a court order Friday that would remove him from the ballot.
That order was granted Tuesday by a Commonwealth Court, officially removing Paterno from what had been a six-candidate field. Paterno, the son of the late Joe Paterno and a former Penn State assistant, announced his candidacy in February.
But to get on the ballot, Paterno needed the petition signatures of 1,000 party-registered voters in the state. Rival candidate Brad Koplinski, a Harrisburg councilman, threatened in mid-March to mount a legal challenge to the validity of Paterno's signatures, with his attorney calling them "terrible."
The primary will be held May 20.
