A federal judge has pushed back the congressional filing date for candidate petitions in the wake of the legal battle over the district remap. U.S. District Judge Joan Leftkow is one of three judges overseeing Republican's challenge to the Democrat's remap of congressional districts. She has pushed back the filing date, which was supposed to be Monday, for candidate petitions to December 23 to December 27. The judge added that if there was no resolution on the legal challenge by December 21, Republicans will need to reach a consensus on pushing the deadline back further or propose a new filing schedule.
Monday will remain as the first day of candidate filing for judges, the state legislature, and county positions.
