Libertarians Sue Husted Over Ballot Access

Ohio's Libertarian party is suing Republican Secretary of State Jon Husted for allegedly refusing to recognize it as an official political party and grant it ballot access privileges. The lawsuit argues presidential nominee Gary Johnson secured more than the 3 percent of the vote needed to qualify the Libertarians as a party under Ohio law. Husted says Johnson's candidacy can't establish party status because he ran as an independent.
