A lawsuit is challenging the U.S. Senate bid of a Tea Party of Nevada candidate.
The suit filed Tuesday in Carson City argues Scott Ashjian was required to submit signatures totaling 1 percent of votes cast in Nevada's last U.S. House elections to qualify for the November ballot.
Ashjian collected names of 250 registered voters under another provision in the law, but the suit claims he was still obligated to comply with the larger signature requirement.
The suit was filed by members of Citizen Outreach, a group headed by conservative activist Chuck Muth. Other plaintiffs are Independent American Party director Janine Hansen and Debbie Landis, head of a tea party group.
Another suit seeking to boot Ashjian from the ballot was rejected by a judge in April.
