Now that Marco Rubio has dropped out of the presidential race, his supporters have ended a legal effort to keep Ohio Gov. John Kasich off the ballot next month in neighboring Pennsylvania.
Presidential candidates must submit 2,000 voter signatures to get on the state's April 26 primary ballot. Kasich’s petitions had 2,184 signatures — but at least 192 of those weren’t valid, both sides agreed.
Attorney Larry Otter, representing the Kasich campaign, initially argued that the protest filed by Rubio supporters shouldn’t count.
