Candidate for Hale County probate judge ruled ineligible to run

The Tuscaloosa News reports: A circuit judge has declared Hale County Democratic probate judge nominee Arthur Crawford ineligible for the November general election because he didn't file timely campaign finance reports during the spring primary runoff against incumbent Leland Avery.

A Hale County Democratic Party official said Avery was certified as the nominee on Wednesday. Avery said he sent the certification with his name on the Nov. 6 ballot against Republican Bob Hoggle.

Montgomery County Circuit Judge Charles Price on Tuesday ruled Crawford ineligible and ordered Alabama Democratic Party Chairman Mark Kennedy to revoke Crawford's certificate of nomination "due to his admitted failure to" timely file campaign finance reports. -- Read the whole story --> Hale County probate judge nominee is ineligible | TuscaloosaNews.com
