Businessman, and regular PoliticsPA commenter, Bob Guzzardi provided one of the biggest surprises of petition season when he accumulated enough signatures to make the Republican primary ballot in the race for Governor.
Only a week later, however, the candidate received notice that his petitions were being challenged by four Republicans with backing from the state party.
To qualify for the May 20th primary ballot a candidate must gather at least 2,000 signatures while obtaining 100 from at least ten separate counties. The challengers allege that Guzzardi only acquired the requisite number of signatures for eight counties.
Currently, a hearing on the motion to dismiss Guzzardi from the ballot is set for the morning of April 2nd.
So, we ask you our readers, do you think Bob Guzzardi will survive this petition challenge and have the privilege of seeing his name on the ballot come May 20th?
