PHILADELPHIA (AP) – A judge is considering whether Green Party presidential candidate Howie Hawkins can appear on PA’s fall ballot. A decision could be made in the coming days, after Commonwealth Court Judge Drew Crompton conducted a three-hour hearing. The Green Party put up Hawkins as presidential candidate and Angela Walker as running mate last month, a replacement ticket that was announced a week after they had put forward a different slate. The legal challenge centers on whether the candidate affidavits for the previous slate were filed in time.
