The Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose has announced the certification of President Donald Trump as the Republican Party presidential candidate for the 2020 Ohio Presidential Primary and 11 presidential candidates for the Democratic Party which include former Vice President Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren.
Other Presidential candidates in the Democratic Party for the March 17, 2020 primary ballot include Michael Bennet, Michael Bloomberg, Cory Booker, Pete Buttigieg, Tulsi Gabbard, Amy Klobuchar, Deval Patrick and Tom Steyer
Although Democratic Presidential candidate Andrew Yang “is certified to receive write-in votes on the March 17, 2020 primary ballot, Secretary of State Frank LaRose said, Andrew Yang “filed and did not meet the necessary requirements to appear on the ballot.”
“On January 6, 2020, Mr. James Moore withdrew his declaration of candidacy as a delegate-at-large for Mr. Yang to the 2020 Democratic Party National Convention.
“As had been previously reported, Mr. Yang’s petitions failed to comply with R.C. 3513.09 which the Supreme Court has held requires strict compliance. Also, on January 6, 2020, Mr. Yang filed declarations of intent to be write-in candidates and declaration of candidacies for Mary Jo Kilroy and Holly Polling as delegates-at-large for Mr. Yang with the Secretary of State’s office.”
