Clinton, Carson, Cruz and Rubio file for Pennsylvania ballot

    Four candidates for president of the United States have filed voter signatures to get on Pennsylvania’s April 26 primary ballot, including Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republicans Ben Carson, Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio.

    That’s according to the Pennsylvania Department of State. Tuesday is the deadline for candidates to file enough signatures of registered voters in their political party to get their name on the ballot.

    Also on the ballot will be races for U.S. Senate and state attorney general.

    Already filing signatures for U.S. Senate are Republican incumbent Pat Toomey and Democrats Joe Sestak and John Fetterman.

    Filers for attorney general include Republican John Rafferty and Democrats Josh Shapiro and Stephen Zappala. Democratic incumbent Kathleen Kane hasn’t filed yet, according to the Department of State.
