JEFFERSON CITY — Sixteen candidates for the Missouri House have been disqualified from the Aug. 3 primaries for missing a key deadline.
The Missouri Ethics Commission said Wednesday it also disqualified nearly 30 candidates for local races like sheriff or county treasurer.
The candidates were disqualified for failing to file personal financial disclosure reports by an April 20 deadline.
None of the disqualified House candidates were incumbents.
Four of them were the lone members of their party in the race. Party nominating committees can pick new candidates to replace those kicked off the ballot.
