Ted Cruz’s Name Appears on New Jersey’s Unofficial Ballot

WILL BALLOT CHALLENGES MAKE A DIFFERENCE?

by Sharon Rondeau

(Apr. 11, 2016) — Contrary to several rumors floated on the internet over the weekend and on Monday morning, Sen. Ted Cruz’s name appears along with other petitioning partisan candidates on the state of New Jersey’s “Unofficial List” of presidential candidates.

Cruz is listed first, apparently as a result of alphabetical ordination.

The filing deadline for partisan presidential candidates in New Jersey was April 4, the same date which appears on the electronic document.  Candidates running as Independents have until August 1 to file their petitions.

On Monday morning at 9:00 a.m., at least two challenges to Cruz’s candidacy were scheduled to be heard at the Administrative law office in Mercerville.  Write-in presidential candidate and attorney Victor Williams, who filed his objection on March 28, told The Post & Email in an interview on Saturday that he will file a formal lawsuit if Cruz is not prohibited from appearing on New Jersey and eight other states’ ballots given that he was born in Canada and is allegedly not a “natural born Citizen,” as is required for the U.S. president.

A second ballot challenge was submitted by Fernando Powers, a former congressional candidate who is represented by Atty. Mario Apuzzo.

Several other ballot objections and lawsuits claiming Cruz is ineligible have been filed, with one having been submitted to and docketed by the U.S. Supreme Court.
