Fourth Candidate for Governor Falls Short on Two Signature Requirements

Story from Nebraska News Service
David Wright of Ewing will not appear as a nonpartisan candidate for governor in November, failing to meet two signature requirements.

Secretary of State Bob Evnen’s office confirmed Sept. 13 Wright did not meet the requirements. Wright submitted 4,339 signatures to the Secretary of State’s Office, with 3,712 able to be verified. This also meant Wright fell short in needing at least 750 signatures from each of Nebraska’s three congressional districts, as the tossed signatures meant he had only 747 verifiable in the second district.

November’s election will include Republican Jim Pillen, Democrat Carol Blood and Libertarian Scott Zimmerman, another candidate saying he will mount a write-in campaign.
