Evan Bayh fallout: Tamyra D'Ippolito falls short of needed signatures(Read article summary)
It doesn't appear that Tamyra D'Ippolito will be on the ballot to replace outgoing Indiana Senator Evan Bayh.
Tamyra D'Ippolito talked tough while appearing on FOX News this morning, saying that she had enough signatures to file a petition of nomination. In order to hit the mark she needed at least 500 signatures in every House District.
She was just a little short in one district though – like 497 signatures short.
"An official in Marion Co. (IN) tells Hotline OnCall d'Ippolito turned in just 3 signatures in the 7th CD, the district with the highest percentage of Dem voters," Reid Wilson writes. "The noon deadline has passed, meaning d'Ippolito failed to meet the requirements to get on the ballot. She would have been required to submit 4,500 signatures, including at least 500 from each of the state's 9 districts."
