PJ Media reported yesterday that Republican Larry Elder will be on the final ballot for the September 14 gubernatorial recall election.
The article reports:
Late Wednesday afternoon, attorney Harmeet K. Dhillon announced that a California judge has ordered Secretary of State Shirley N. Weber to include Republican Larry Elder on the final ballot for the September 14 gubernatorial recall election.
Larry Elder had been kept off the ballot because the Secretary of State claimed that he had not submitted enough tax return information.
…The judge opened the hearing “with a tentative ruling that the tax return disclosure requirement doesn’t seem to apply to recall elections,” tweeted Dhillon, “and if it did, Larry Elder substantially complied with it.”
The article concludes:
The ruling means Larry Elder’s name will be included on the final candidate list later today and the final list will then be sent to the printer as per state law. The election to recall California’s Governor Gavin Newsom will be held on September 14.
For everyone–except the secretary of state, her lawyer, and the Democrats–this order is a win. It’s definitely a win for The Sage of South Central, who has the constitutional right to be on the ballot, and for California voters, who have the right to have qualified candidates to choose from in September.
This is good news.
