Candidate files suit over GOP removing him from ballot

AL.com reports: A state legislative candidate in Semmes has filed a lawsuit seeking to overturn the Alabama Republican Party's decision to invalidate his bid for the state House of Representatives based on a residency issue.

The suit, filed late Friday in Mobile County Circuit Court, seeks a hearing as soon as possible and argues that the party's decision earlier this month was "unequal, arbitrary and capricious." The civil complaint seeks an order requiring the party to accept the results of the June 3 primary, where McNeil's name will be on the ballot in House District 102 because it was too late to remove it.

"We're asking Judge (Rick) Stout to certify that I am a candidate and certify my results," McNeil said. "I'm looking forward to my day in court." -- Semmes candidate McNeil seeks court order overturning GOP's decision to invalidate candidacy | AL.com
