Washington Libertarians have filed a lawsuit against the state and the Republican Party, aiming to keep Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan off the November ballot.
David Ammons in the Secretary of State's Office says the filers of the suit claim Republicans should be considered a minor party. And because they did not hold nominating conventions and collect signatures, they don't qualify.
Thurston County Judge Thomas McPhee will review the case. Until they're told otherwise, the Elections Division plans to put the Republican presumed-nominees on ballot.
