Ron Asta Off the Ballot; Mayoral Race Down to Five

Posted By on Fri, Jun 17, 2011 at 4:16 PM

In a development that at least means far fewer "steak in the pants" jokes, Ron Asta was removed from contention in the mayoral race this afternoon at the Pima County Courthouse. I'm not entirely sure what we're going to do with RonAsta.com now, but this leaves Jonathan Rothschild unopposed in the Democratic primary, Shaun McClusky on the Republican side (at least until his challenge hearing), Pat Darcy as an independent (for now), and the Green Party race between Dave Croteau and Mary DeCamp.

UPDATE: Jessica Reeves Foster, who launched the challenge against Asta's candidacy, commenting on the ruling via Facebook:

I'm pleased with the out come of today's ruling!!! I"m so thankful to my cousin Nicolle Callahan for following thru for me and our family. I also want to thank the community and volunteers who stepped up and helped us pull this together. As for the hearing today, it astounds me that he still believes that laws pertain to everyone but him, but I guess not really. This is the same thinking that he used when he ran the stop sign that killed my sister and continues to display by not changing his driving habits.
