Opponent Disqualification

Less than one week before the primary, one of Sullivan's opponents, Tommie Reece, was kicked off of the ballot due to an ongoing filing dispute in the state. Sullivan issued a statement the next day, saying, "Although Ms. Reece and I disagree on many issues, I am angry and outraged that she or anyone would be removed from the ballot at the last hour because of a minor and obscure legal technicality. All candidates deserve the opportunity to offer their views and ideas to the public. Likewise, the voters should be afforded as many choices as possible."[9]
