Michigan Board of Canvassers votes to keep 5 Republicans off of the gubernatorial ballot

Breitbart News reports that Michigan’s Board of Canvassers has decided to keep five Republican candidates who are running to be the state’s next governor off of the ballot. 

The decision has to do with signatures. Under Michigan law, each gubernatorial candidate must obtain a minimum of 15,000 valid signatures in order to have his or her name put on the ballot. The claim is that these five Republican candidates had large numbers of fraudulent signatures.

Accordingly, the Michigan Board of Canvassers held a vote on whether or not to allow the names of these five Republicans to be put on the ballot.

The vote went along party lines. The board’s two Republican members voted to allow the names to be put on the ballot, and the board’s two Democratic members voted to keep the names off of the ballot. In the event of a tie, the staff’s recommendation wins out, and that recommendation was to keep the five Republicans’ names off of the ballot.

Among the five individuals are two of the Republicans’ top candidates for the Michigan governorship: former Detroit Police Chief James Craig and businessman Perry Johnson.

The claim is that Craig submitted 9,879 fraudulent signatures and Johnson, 6,983.

Johnson has filed a lawsuit arguing that the Board of Canvassers “failed to carry their burden of establishing the invalidity of enough of Mr. Johnson’s signatures by clear, competent, and convincing evidence.” Accordingly, Johnson is asking the court to allow his name to be put on the ballot.

Craig is expected to file a similar lawsuit.

For now, though, both are off of the ballot. This is a huge blow to state Republicans who are looking to right the ship after Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s (D) disastrous leadership.
