Myers Plans Lawsuit To Get Running Mate Change On Ballot

Myers Plans Lawsuit To Get Running Mate Change On Ballot
Mike Myers

SIOUX FALLS, SD -

An independent candidate for governor says he plans to sue the South Dakota Secretary of State.

Mike Myers says he'll file a lawsuit in federal court to get Lora Hubbel on the ballot as his Lieutenant Governor.  Myers got on the ballot, but his former running mate before Hubbel has since withdrawn her name.

Though South Dakota allows party candidates to replace running mates through August, Myers says as an independent candidate, he's not allowed to do the same.

"If you're not on the ballot, people don't have a choice.  This time, I'm on the ballot.  I'm on the ballot.  78-years-old.  I'm not for sale," Myers said.

Myers says he'll file his complaint on Monday.

In a statement to KELOLAND News, Jason Gant writes: "State law details the procedure for replacing a Lieutenant Governor candidate for the Republican and Democrat parties; however there is not a procedure in State law to replace Independent Lieutenant Governor candidates because Independents are not members of a political party.  State law does not grant the authority to the Secretary of State to replace a candidate.  Only a court may rule that an Independent Lieutenant Governor candidate may be changed, I will gladly replace the name before ballots are printed."
