Court Orders Shawn Lunny Removed from Ballot

It's Molchany vs. Schmotzer in April 24's Democratic primary.

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court decided on Friday that 's name is to be removed from the ballot of April 24's Democratic primary election for Pennsylvania's 22nd House District seat.

Candidates for that race were required to submit 300 valid signatures of registered Democratic voters in the 22nd District, but the court found that "the Nomination Petition of Shawn Lunny contains less than the requisite 300 signatures required to be a candidate for Representative in the General Assembly."

Thus, and  will be the only Democratic names on the ballot for the 22nd District seat on April 24.

Republican  is the only candidate from his party running for that seat, meaning that either Molchany or Schmotzer will almost certainly face Cratsley in November's general election.

The entirety of the 22nd District includes at least parts of ,  and Castle Shannon Borough and the Pittsburgh neighborhoods of OverbrookBrooklineMount WashingtonBeechviewDuquesne HeightsManchesterSheraden and Esplen.
