The Indiana Election Commission will weigh the fate of a slew of candidates running in the 2012 elections.
The four-member panel plans to meet Friday morning to consider
challenges filed by voters against candidates ranging from President Barack Obama to a handful of potential state lawmakers.
Republican presidential contender Rick Santorum appeared to dodge a bullet Thursday after the Marion County Board of Voter Registration determined he had collected enough signatures to appear on the May ballot.
The panel will also hear a series of challenges to U.S. Sen.
Richard Lugar. Tea partiers opposing the veteran senator say he has
not properly maintained a residence in Indiana.
Republican gubernatorial candidate Jim Wallace will also be
fighting for ballot access.
