GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) - Members of the Libertarian party say they will sue Michigan's Secretary of State because their party's presidential candidates is not on the ballot.
A judge ruled last week that former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson will not be allowed to run on Michigan's presidential ballot because he was a republican candidate in Michigan's presidential primary last February.
The party offered Johnson's name as a write-in, they say that was also rejected. Michigan Libertarian Party leaders say the state is wrong to keep Johnson off the state's ballot.
"Everyone's looking for a second choice, a third choice, a different option, and I believe the Libertarians can give us, the people, those options," says Denee Rockman-Moon, chairwoman of the Libertarian Party of Michigan.
State law does not allow a losing candidate to run in the general election for another political party. There are three other third-party or independent presidential candidates on Michigan's November 6th ballot.
