Phillips Added to Democratic Primary Ballot in Wisconsin, Will Battle Pres. Biden

(Madison, WI) (AP)  The Wisconsin Supreme Court will allow U.S. Rep. Dean Phillips to add his name to the state’s Democratic presidential primary ballot. The court ruled Friday that state Democratic leaders on a presidential selection committee didn’t properly exercise their discretion when they left Phillips off the ballot without any discussion during a five-minute meeting on Jan. 2. The court’s decision leaves Phillips and President Joe Biden as the only Democrats on the April 2 primary ballot. The selection committee also placed former President Donald Trump and five other Republican challengers, including four who have since ceased campaigning, on the ballot.
