(Harrisburg) —The first Democratic presidential candidates are filing signatures to get on Pennsylvania’s primary ballot.

That’s according to information from the state election office Friday.

Those filing include California billionaire Tom Steyer, former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar and former New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg.

The other campaigns have through 5 p.m. Tuesday to file 2,000 signatures of voters who are registered Democrats to get on Pennsylvania’s April 28 primary ballot.

Pennsylvania is a late primary state, but could be important if the eventual nominee remains in doubt past March.

President Donald Trump’s campaign also filed his paperwork to get on the GOP primary ballot.
