Attorney John Zeiger, left, questions Oscar C. Hatchett Jr., right, a petition circulator for Libertarian gubernatorial candidate Charlie Earl, during a Tuesday, March 4, 2014, hearing before appointed hearing officer Bradley Smith, back, in Columbus, Ohio. Lawyers sparred in Ohio over whether a Libertarian gubernatorial candidate is qualified for May’s ballot, in a dispute whose outcome could affect Republican Gov. John Kasich’s re-election. Earl has the potential to draw votes from Kasich as he faces a likely challenge from Democrat Ed FitzGerald this fall. Kasich has been criticized by tea party activists and other conservatives within his party for some of his policy decisions, including backing Medicaid expansion and drilling tax increases.
