PHOENIX (AP) — A drawing has determined the order of Arizona's crowded ballot for the Republican presidential primary, but it does not contain former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman.
Secretary of State Ken Bennett says Huntsman's filing to get on the ballot did not qualify because it had a photocopied signature and wasn't notarized. Huntsman's campaign says it will challenge his being left off, but ballots get printed this week.
Without Huntsman and about 20 others whose filings also were deemed deficient, the Arizona ballot for the Republican primary will have 23 candidates.
A drawing conducted Tuesday puts Phoenix resident Donald Benjamin first on the ballot. The college academic adviser says he voted four years ago for Democrat Barack Obama and just recently re-registered as a Republican.
