(Harrisburg) -- The paperwork of Chicago businessman Willie Wilson to get on Pennsylvania's presidential primary ballot has been rejected by the commonwealth.

Wilson's paperwork was rejected for insufficient voter signatures he filed before the close-of-business deadline the previous day.

He is running as a Democrat. 

Nine others filed paperwork to get on the ballot to run for president, including Democrats Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders and Roque "Rocky'' De La Fuente, and Republicans Jeb Bush, Ben Carson, Ted Cruz, John Kasich, Marco Rubio and Donald Trump.  

Pennsylvania's primary election is April 26.  

Among the other races on the ballot are for U.S. Senate and state attorney general.
