Candidate on Ballot as Independent
AP Thursday October 16, 2014

A federal judge has denied a request by the Libertarian Party candidate for governor that his party affiliation appear next to his name on the ballot. Instead, Daniel Lewis will be listed as an independent.
That's because the Libertarian Party of Tennessee has not collected the more-than-40,000 signatures needed to qualify for the ballot under Tennessee law. Individual candidates need to collect on 25 signatures to appear on the ballot, but they appear as independents if their parties have not also qualified.
The party is suing over the signature requirement.
