SUPCO Justice Recuses Himself From Gubernatorial Candidate's Challenge
Republican Ohio Supreme Court Justice Pat DeWine has recused himself from hearing a Democratic gubernatorial candidate's lawsuit challenging his disqualification from the ballot. Jon Heavey yesterday asked the court to reverse Republican Secretary of State Jon Husted's decision removing him from the ballot. DeWine is the son of Republican Attorney General and GOP gubernatorial candidate Mike DeWine. Husted is his running mate. Heavey alleges dozens of the petition signatures he submitted were inaccurately dismissed for reasons including illegibility, wrong party or not writing in cursive.
