Hearing scheduled in Green Party dispute

The case of eleven Green Party Candidates allegedly recruited by Republicans will go before a judge on Thursday.

U.S. District Judge David G. Campbell has scheduled a 1 p.m. hearing to consider a request by the Arizona Green Party to kick the candidates from the November ballot.

The Green and Democratic parties say the candidates were recruited by Republicans to siphon votes from Democrats.

The Green Party says it is not backing the disputed candidates, who used a little-known provision in state law to get on the ballot with just one write-in vote.
