It'll probably turn out to be nothing, but Libertarian candidate Bob Barr is suing the state of Texas for ignoring it's own election laws which state that candidates must be certified 70 days before the election AKA August 25th. But because neither candidate had been officially nominated by their party until August 28th and September 4th for Obama and McCain respectively they cannot be on the ballot in Texas. Now I'd be willing to throw a couple bucks on a bet saying that Obama and McCain will be on the ballot, but it sounds like the case has some merit, and being an Obama supporter I can't help but think of how fucked McCain would be without Texas. Thanks D. Kos!
