COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio and its election chief on Friday appealed a federal judge's decision that blocks newly imposed limits on ballot access for minor parties.
The state election chief on Tuesday barred counties from setting voting hours on disputed early-voting days, saying that establishing new times would confuse voters while a legal battle brought by President Obama's campaign continues.
Newt Gingrich is surging in the presidential polls, but his campaign organization has not caught up — making it possible he'll miss Wednesday's deadline to file enough signatures to even appear on Ohio's primary ballot.
Husted spokesman Matt McClellan said the secretary seeks to clarify how Watson wants him to proceed and is not asking him to weigh in on the constitutionality of the law.
"We don't want to apply old rules to new elections," McClellan said.
