If Ohio Moves Primary To May, Some Candidates Not On Ballot

The Ohio House will consider a bill to move the Ohio presidential primary up from June to May, and preserve the current filing deadline of December 7, 2011. If the bill passes, Bachmann, Santorum, Huntsman, and Paul would not be on the ballot. They would have to run as write-in candidates.

Update: It looks like the deadline in this case would actually be March 8, so the candidates are safe for now.
