HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Pennsylvania state election officials say they have rejected the paperwork of Chicago businessman Willie Wilson to get on the state’s presidential primary ballot.

Officials said Wednesday that Wilson’s paperwork was rejected for insufficient voter signatures he filed before the close-of-business deadline the previous day.

Wilson is running as a Democrat. Wilson says his lawyer is contacting state election officials to explore whether there’s an opportunity to appeal. Wilson also says more days should have been allowed to collect signatures because of the heavy snowstorm three weeks ago.

Nine others filed paperwork to get on Pennsylvania’s ballot for president, including Democrats Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders and Roque “Rocky” De La Fuente, and Republicans Jeb Bush, Ben Carson, Ted Cruz, John Kasich, Marco Rubio and Donald Trump.

Pennsylvania’s primary election is April 26.
