(Harrisburg) --  Court challenges seeking to knock Republican presidential candidates Ted Cruz and John Kasich off the Pennsylvania primary ballot have been scheduled for hearings in March. 

The challenge to Kasich was filed by a Marco Rubio activist and will be heard March 9.

It questions the signatures collected to get Kasich on the April 26 ballot. 

Two Cruz challenges will be heard March 10. One was filed by a Pittsburgh Republican who says Cruz isn't qualified to run for president because he was born in Canada.

The other challenges the signatures collected to put Cruz on the ballot. 

Seven others filed paperwork to get on Pennsylvania's ballot for president: Republicans Rubio, Jeb Bush, Ben Carson, and Donald Trump and Democrats Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders and Roque "Rocky'' De La Fuente.
