State Democrats filed a challenge Wednesday to Rep. Todd Young’s (R-9th) place on the ballot for the U.S. Senate Republican primary. They say Young doesn’t have enough of the signatures he needs to be on the ballot in May.

Senate candidates need 500 signatures from registered voters in each congressional district in order to appear on the primary ballot.  Clerks in the three northwest Indiana counties that make up the First District certified 501 signatures for Todd Young.
