Attempt to remove Moellman

In early September two Republican activists attempted to have Moellman removed from the ballot by filing a lawsuit that claimed nearly half of his nominating signatures were flawed or fictitious. Under state law, most third-party candidates need 5,000 valid signatures to be placed on the ballot, while Republicans and Democrats are only required to have two signatures.[2] The suit was dropped on September 12.[3]
