California gubernatorial candidate Larry Elder won a court battle to list his name on the recall ballot after the state said he did not qualify.
Elder’s attorneys were in an emergency court hearing Wednesday fighting a weekend ruling by the California secretary of state that argued “incomplete redacted and/or unredacted income tax returns were filed.” A judge ruled tax returns are not required for a recall election, contrary to state rules.
The ballots go to the printer Thursday.
“This isn’t just a victory for me, but a victory for the people of California. And not just those who favor the recall and support me, but all voters, including many who will come to know me. I am thankful for a fair judge,” Elder tweeted.
