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.
