The Texas Supreme Court denied a Republican attempt to take Libertarians off the November ballot.

A group of Republican candidates petitioned the Supreme Court on August 8 to have 23 Libertarian rivals struck from the ballot because they did not meet the standards. Lt. Governor Dan Patrick and several candidates for state and federal legislatures were supported by the Republicans.

The Texas Supreme Court denied a Republican attempt to take Libertarians off the November ballot

The Republican Party’s attempt to have a number of Libertarian candidates removed off the November ballot was rejected by the Texas Supreme Court on Friday, according to the ruling. The all-GOP court stated in a unanimous decision that the challenge came too late in the election season without commenting on its merits.

According to the court, the candidates were nominated by the Libertarian Party in April, but the GOP didn’t dispute their candidacies until earlier this month. A group of Republican candidates petitioned the Supreme Court on August 8 to have 23 Libertarians removed from the ballot because they did not match the standards.

Lt. Governor Dan Patrick and several candidates for state and federal legislatures were supported by the Republicans. According to state law, Libertarian candidates must either submit petitions with enough signatures or pay filing fees, the amount of which varies depending on the post sought.

Due to the payments not going into their nomination process like they do for Democrats and Republicans, the Libertarian Party claims the statute is unjust and is being challenged in federal court. Republicans also attempted to remove several Libertarian candidates from the 2020 ballot, but they were unsuccessful.

The state Supreme Court ruled in that instance that the GOP waited until after the deadline to contest the candidacy of a candidate. This time, the Republicans submitted their challenge prior to that deadline, but it seems that they did not meet the court’s preference to handle election disputes as soon as the alleged problems are brought to light.

The court stated in its decision on Friday that the GOP’s “emergency timing” argument “is wholly the outcome of needless delay in bringing the matter to court.” The Texas Libertarian Party’s chair, Whitney Bilyeu, declared in a statement that the party was “thrilled” with the outcome.

As we did the previous time, we opposed Republicans’ reckless attempts to restrict voter choice and prevent free and fair elections. Republicans have long tried to push Libertarians out of the mainstream because they believe they steal Republican voters.

Democrats, on the other hand, view the Green Party as a danger. Few of the 23 contests in which the GOP this time took on Libertarian candidates are anticipated to be close. The 15th Congressional District, the most contentious congressional election in the state and a key target of Republicans nationwide, stands out as the most glaring exception.

Ross Lynn Leone, a libertarian, will still be up for election there against Michelle Vallejo, a Democrat, and Monica De La Cruz, a Republican. Patrick’s race might be close as well. In 2018, he received 5 percentage points more votes than the Libertarian candidate, who received 2% of the vote.
