Lorinser announces ‘urgent petition drive' after learning Republicans may block him from getting on ballot

The Bob Lorinser campaign has been informed Republicans may try to challenge Dr. Bob's campaign filing due to a technicality of having "Dr." in front of Bob's name on petitions, in an attempt to block him off the ballot.

This is just one of several partisan attacks on petitions this year. Getting on the ballot is our number one priority, so it's time to unite and mobilize. We cannot allow partisan politics to discredit the 3,400 people who have already signed in support of Bob getting on the ballot. 

 

We are now mobilizing the public for an immediate petition drive to gather 1,500 signatures on new petitions before April 15.

 

Voters who previously signed Bob's petitions, we urgently ask you to sign new forms. Your previous signatures will not be submitted. If you haven't signed yet, please do it now. Bring several friends with you to sign as well. Volunteers are encouraged to help recirculate.
