Ann Kirkpatrick to remain on the August ballot

Democratic congressional candidate Ann Kirkpatrick can appear on the August 28-th primary ballot even though information about where she lives was incorrectly stated on some of her campaign documents, a judge ruled Tuesday. A lawsuit funded by one of Kirkpatrick’s opponents sought to kick her off the ballot, alleging she falsely claimed she lived in an apartment in Tucson, when she actually resides in a condo in downtown Phoenix. Kirkpatrick said she has been living in Tucson for more than a year. Judge Joshua Rogers concluded Kirkpatrick was residing in Tucson when she announced her candidacy in July and when she collected petition signatures to appear on the ballot. The lawsuit was funded by the campaign of former state Representative Matt Heinz, who is competing against Kirkpatrick for the Democratic nomination in Congressional District 2, which includes the Tucson area and Cochise County.
