State Supreme Court Justice has upheld the candidate petitions of Jose Cruz and John Lightfoot, the Democrats who are challenging incumbent State Assembly member David Gantt in a three-way primary.

The validity of the petitions was challenged by Ruth Brooks-Ward.

Ark rejected arguments that some of Cruz’s petitions contained fraud and that Lightfoot hadn’t adequately identified the office he was seeking.

The three candidates will now face off in a September 13 primary.

    For a man who entered public life to fight oppression and lack of fairness, Mr. Gantt has become just what he oppossed so may years ago. It is the ultimate in irony.
