State officials say Donald Trump and John Kasich have filed enough signatures to get on Pennsylvania’s April 26 primary ballot. That’s 10 total candidates who filed to run for United States president in Pennsylvania.

The deadline to submit signatures was Tuesday at 5 p.m., and counting took a couple more hours. Court challenges could follow to test whether each candidate collected 2,000 legitimate signatures of registered voters in their political party.

Candidates for president who filed signatures include Democrats Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, Willie Wilson and Rocky De La Fuente. The Republicans are Jeb Bush, Ben Carson, Ted Cruz, Kasich, Marco Rubio and Trump.

Filing for U.S. Senate are Republican incumbent Pat Toomey and Democrats John Fetterman, Katie McGinty, Joe Sestak and Joe Vodvarka.

Filers for attorney general include Republicans John Rafferty and Joe Peters, and Democrats Josh Shapiro, Stephen Zappala and John Morganelli. Democratic incumbent Kathleen Kane isn’t running again.
