Indiana requires presidential candidates to obtain 500 signatures from each congressional district to earn a place on the primary ballot. Now there's a debate as to whether John McCain received enough signatures in one congressional district, as the Associated Press reports:
Indiana Republican spokesman Jay Kenworthy says he checked the petition Thursday and counted 531 signatures from the district in question.
State Democratic Chairman Dan Parker says his staff counted 496 signatures from that district.
GOVERNING Politics is the place for news and analysis on campaigns and elections. If there's a ballot measure in California, a legislative election in Alabama, a mayoral election in Anchorage or a governor's race in Rhode Island, GOVERNING Politics probably is writing about it. We love everything about state and local politics, from polls and campaign ads to policy debates and demographic trends.
