IOWA ATTORNEY GENERAL TOM MILLER HAS SURVIVED A CHALLENGE OF HIS NOMINATING FORMS FOR THE JUNE PRIMARY BALLOT — BUT JUST BARELY.

THE STATE OBJECTION PANEL HAS UPHELD SOME OBJECTIONS TO PEOPLE WHO SIGNED MILLER’S NOMINATING PETITIONS AND WROTE DOWN A POST OFFICE BOX NUMBER INSTEAD OF THE PHYSICAL ADDRESS OF THEIR RESIDENCE.

HOWEVER, THE PANEL FOUND MILLER HAD SUBMITTED ENOUGH SIGNATURES IN 18 COUNTIES — AND IN DRAMATIC FASHION THE FINAL COUNTY’S TALLY SHOWED HE HAD JUST ONE SIGNATURE TO SPARE.
