Philip Pidot Bid For Congressional Primary Ballot ‘Impossible,’ Judge Says

In Newsday, Paul LaRocco reports “a state Supreme Court justice ruled out the possibility of a Republican primary Tuesday in the 3rd Congressional District, despite validating the candidacy of a challenger.

Justice Arthur Diamond issued a written decision Friday that said Philip Pidot had enough petition signatures to qualify for a primary against the GOP-backed candidate, state Sen. Jack M. Martins.

But Diamond denied Pidot’s requests to compel the state Board of Elections to certify and print June 28 ballots as “impossible,” given the short timeline.”
