HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) – Hearings are scheduled in March for newly filed court challenges seeking to knock Republican presidential candidates Ted Cruz and John Kasich off the primary ballot in Pennsylvania.
The court’s schedule was issued Wednesday.
To get on the ballot, major-party candidates for president must gather 2,000 signatures of registered voters from their party and submit them by the deadline, which was Feb. 16.
Seven others filed paperwork to get on Pennsylvania’s ballot for president, including Democrats Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders and Roque “Rocky” De La Fuente, and Republicans Jeb Bush, Ben Carson, Marco Rubio and Donald Trump.
The challenge to Kasich was filed by a Rubio activist. Pennsylvania’s primary election is April 26.
