SUPREME HELP: Candidate Hopes for Intervention
Jonathan Narcisse’s last chance to run for governor this year rests with the Iowa Supreme Court. The court gave Narcisse until Monday to provide the necessary briefs that help make his case. Narcisse asked the court to intervene and allow him his second gubernatorial run after the state’s top election official determined he didn’t follow the rules to run.
Narcisse is a former Des Moines school board member. The secretary of state’s office tossed out his petitions to run for governor. The office said Narcisse failed to properly fill out the forms as required for candidates.
If Narcisse gets the court to side with him, he would join Des Moines State Senator Jack Hatch in the June Democratic primary.
Narcisse ran as an Independent candidate for governor in 2010.
