The U.S. Supreme Court has denied the Libertarian Party of Ohio its chance to get a gubernatorial candidate on the ballot for Tuesday's primary.
Libertarians sued, arguing Husted's decision was unconstitutional and conflicted with prior rulings of the office, but lost an appeal last week.
The party took that decision to the high court where Justice Elena Kagan rejected their request. The party refiled with Justice Clarence Thomas who referred it to the full court, where it was denied Monday.
The party's attorney says he will seek a rehearing in federal appeals court.
