Pennsylvania presidential primary field whittled to 9

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) – Pennsylvania state election officials say they have rejected the paperwork of Chicago businessman Willie Wilson to get on the state’s presidential primary ballot.

Officials said Wednesday that Wilson’s paperwork was rejected for insufficient voter signatures he filed before the close-of-business deadline the previous day. Wilson is running as a Democrat.

Nine others filed paperwork to get on Pennsylvania’s ballot to run for president, including Democrats Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders and Roque “Rocky” De La Fuente, and Republicans Jeb Bush, Ben Carson, Ted Cruz, John Kasich, Marco Rubio and Donald Trump.

Pennsylvania’s primary election is April 26.

Also on the ballot will be races for U.S. Senate and state attorney general.
