The Idaho Supreme Court earlier rejected a lawsuit from 10 individuals and the Idaho Republican Party seeking to toss independent candidate Rex Rammell off the ballot for the state’s open U.S. Senate seat, offering a speedy ruling as counties were about to print their ballots for the November election. Now, the court has come out with its full written opinion in the case. In an opinion written by Chief Justice Dan Eismann, the unanimous court found that “the Secretary of State is required by statute to place Rammell’s name on the ballot.” You can read the full opinion here.
