Court Orders Shawn Lunny Removed from Ballot
It's Molchany vs. Schmotzer in April 24's Democratic primary.
Candidates for that race were required to submit 300 valid signatures of registered Democratic voters in the 22nd District, but the court found that "the Nomination Petition of Shawn Lunny contains less than the requisite 300 signatures required to be a candidate for Representative in the General Assembly."
Republican Chris Cratsley is the only candidate from his party running for that seat, meaning that either Molchany or Schmotzer will almost certainly face Cratsley in November's general election.
The entirety of the 22nd District includes at least parts of Whitehall Borough, Baldwin Township and Castle Shannon Borough and the Pittsburgh neighborhoods of Overbrook, Brookline, Mount Washington, Beechview, Duquesne Heights, Manchester, Sheraden and Esplen.
