PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — South Dakota Secretary of State Jason Gant says Republican Senate candidate Doctor Annette Bosworth submitted enough valid signatures to be on the ballot for the GOP U.S. Senate primary.

Political activist and commentator Cory Heidelberger recently filed an affidavit with Gant’s office questioning some of Bosworth’s signatures. But Gant on Saturday ruled the challenge unsuccessful.

Bosworth’s campaign submitted 2,750 signatures to Gant’s office. Gant says 2,305 of those were valid, exceeding the 1,955 the Sioux Falls physician needed to get on the ballot.

Gant, however, has forwarded the affidavit to the state’s attorney general to determine whether one of the claims raised is true.

Heidelberger is questioning some signatures presumably gathered by Bosworth and her husband. Heidelberger says the couple was in the Philippines when the signatures were collected.
