DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - The Iowa Supreme Court has rejected an appeal argument by Jonathan Narcisse in his fight to gain a spot on the Democratic primary ballot for governor.

Last week a judge denied the former Des Moines school board member’s request to overturn a ruling by the Iowa secretary of state’s office that his nomination petitions were incomplete.

That office ruled earlier this month that some of Narcisse’s petitions didn’t note the title of the office sought, disqualifying him from being placed on primary ballots. The decision leaves state Sen. Jack Hatch the only Democrat running for governor.

On Friday, the Iowa Supreme Court agreed to hear Narcisse’s appeal and on Monday delivered an opinion that simply affirms the district court decision.
