Scoppe: Party error

Don’t blame the government for the fact that more than a dozen candidates have been or likely will be disqualified after winning the primaries, and that their defeated foes will be on the November ballot instead. The fault falls squarely on the shoulders of county party officials who refused to remove candidates from the ballot even though they had not complied with state law in filing for office.
