(Harrisburg) -- A court is granting Jay Paterno's request to remove his name from the May 20 Democratic Party primary ballot for lieutenant governor of Pennsylvania.
Commonwealth Court issued the order today.
Jay Paterno, son of the late Penn State football coach Joe Paterno, dropped out of what had been a six-man race Friday and requested the court order because he didn't withdraw until after the deadline for doing so. Paterno had been facing a court challenge to his nominating petitions that could have knocked him off the ballot.
Still competing in the race for the Democratic nomination are former U.S. Representative Mark Critz of Johnstown, state Senator Michael Stack of Philadelphia, state Representative Brandon Neuman of Washington County, Bradford County Commissioner Mark Smith and Harrisburg City Councilman Brad Koplinski.
