The Lucas County Republican Party plans to challenge Ohio's elections chief in court in a dispute over nominees for the county's troubled elections board.
The Blade in Toledo (http://bit.ly/TEOnPD ) reports the local party's executive committee voted Wednesday in favor of asking the Ohio Supreme Court to force Husted to accept the nominees.
A spokesman told the newspaper Husted wasn't available to comment Wednesday on the panel's decision.
Democrats have recommended someone to fill the remaining seat on the panel. Husted hasn't said whether he'll appoint that nominee.
