Richmond mayoral hopeful remains eight signatures short

RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) – The fight to get Michael Ryan onto the ballot in the Richmond mayor’s race may continue, despite a setback Monday.

Ryan had challenged the Richmond City Registrar that he had not secured enough signatures to appear as a challenger to Richmond Mayor Dwight Jones, on the November ballot.

Ryan’s attorneys told CBS 6 reporter Joe St. George that the registrar’s analysis of the signatures indicated that Ryan is eight signatures short. Before the analysis Ryan was 23 signatures short.

Ryan’s legal team planned a 2:00 p.m. press conference to announce their next move in this case.

This is a developing story.
