The NRCC sent out the following press release this morning, and we wanted to be sure you heard the news.

In Case You Missed It: Judge rules Eric Weissmann's petitions qualify him for GOP's 2nd CD primary

Wednesday, April 25, 2012 | Comments (1)

In exciting news today for the campaign, a Denver Circuit Court judge respected the wishes of over 1,000 Colorado Republicans and allowed Eric Weissmann onto the ballot. In his decision he also turned back the lawsuit filed by Colorado Democrats, allied with Jared Polis, to try and decide the election in the courtroom, not the ballot box.

From The Denver Post...

Republican Eric Weissmann will be on the ballot for the 2nd Congressional district primary, a Denver district court judge ruled this morning.

Judge Robert S. Hyatt ruled today that some, but not all of the signatures in question could be included. The allowed number were enough to put Weissmann over the 1,000-signature threshold for the June 26 ballot.

Hyatt also rejected arguments by the Colorado Democratic Party, which filed a motion to intervene stating that its own analysis determined Weissmann hadn't gathered a sufficient number of signatures, irrespective of the clerical errors.

Weissmann lashed out at Democrats today for what he called "unprecedented and outrageous" meddling in a Republican primary.

Weissmann Petition Process Moves to New Phase

Tuesday, April 10, 2012 | Comments (0)

Mario Nicolais, attorney for Republican congressional candidate Eric Weissmann, today issued the following statement upon being notified that the Secretary of State's office has initially validated an insufficient number of signatures to secure a position on the primary ballot, due to a clerical error:

"This afternoon, we learned that the Secretary of State was invalidating a large number of the Eric Weissmann campaign's ballot access petitions due to small but systematic errors in the notarization process. We will appeal the Secretary of State's invalidation to the Denver District Court. While these clerical errors are unfortunate, Colorado case law gives us considerable comfort that the campaign's petition submissions will be ruled substantially compliant with Colorado law."
