PHOENIX (AP) — A judge has removed Arizona Corporation Commissioner Boyd Dunn from the Republican Party primary ballot after invalidating a large number of nominating signatures.
The tossed signatures include 166 from a paid circulator who acknowledged in court she forged some signatures.
The Arizona Republic reported that Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Roger Brodman said Dunn was short 92 signatures to qualify for a spot on the ballot.
Dunn is a Republican seeking a second term on the five-member commission and says he'll appeal.
The elected panel has duties that include regulating utilities.
