GOP Wins Round in Tussle to Replace Ney
COLUMBUS, Ohio -- The favored candidate to take Rep. Bob Ney's spot on the ticket can legally do so under Ohio law, the state attorney general said Thursday.

Secretary of State Ken Blackwell had sought the opinion from Attorney General Jim Petro as Republicans considered how to replace Ney, who announced this week he would not seek re-election.
...
Blackwell, who as secretary of state is the chief elections officer, has the final say and did not act Thursday.

Democrats probably will take the case to court once Blackwell weighs in or a special election is set, said Brian Rothenberg, spokesman for the state Democratic Party.

1. It really is based on a technicality....
The reason she was question was that she had run as Jim Petro's running mate in the primary... The "Sore Loser" law in Ohio does not permit a Lieberman... If you lost in the primary you can't run as an independent or write in for the general...

Well, it seems since she is running in another race all together, the "Sore Loser" law does not apply...

3. The party can replace a vacancy even with the loser of a primary
... the question is whether she can be the person for that vacancy if she can run for two different offices.
