“Terrible fit” for Green Party removed from Ohio U.S. House ballot

conditJim Condit, Jr., the Green Party nominee in the June 7 special election in Ohio’s Eighth U.S. House district and also for the seat in the November general election, will not be on the November ballot after the Butler County Board of Elections determined that he voted in the Republican presidential primary in March. Ohio law states that a candidate voting in a primary as a member of a political party different from the party that nominated the candidate forfeits the nomination. However, Condit remains on the ballot as a Green in the special election in two weeks.

According to WHIO-TV in Dayton, Condit “admitted that he is ‘a terrible fit’ for the Green Party.” He added, “It’s such a bad fit that in a way I’m relieved.” Greens in the district say they will select another nominee.
