Libertarian Presidential Candidate Gary Johnson on Iowa Ballot in November
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson will be on the Iowa ballot in November.
Polk County District Court Judge Arthur Gamble says in a ruling filed Tuesday that Libertarians fulfilled legal requirements to get their candidate on the ballot.
Two Iowa voters last week asked Gamble to review the decision of a panel of three state officials that allowed Johnson on the ballot. The panel said in its decision that Iowa's law isn't clear in its definition of a caucus.
Libertarians say they held a caucus at the Iowa State Fair to get Johnson the ballot. The challengers say there was no caucus.
The challengers decided not to appeal to the Iowa Supreme Court.
A spokesman for Iowa Secretary of State Matt Schultz says Johnson has been certified to the ballot.
