CARSON CITY, Nev. (MyNews4.com & KRNV) -- The Nevada Supreme Court has upheld the removal of a state Comptroller candidate from the June primary ballot. The ruling makes Democratic candidate John Michael Schaefer not qualified to run for the office.
The issue is his residency status. The Secretary of State's Office challenged Schaefer's eligibility after obtaining information that last year, he ran for the Los Angeles City Council.
Under Nevada law, a candidate for comptroller must be a resident for two years before being eligible to seek the office.
