John Heckenlively believes he has enough signatures to put him on the November ballot to challenge Rep. Paul Ryan in the 1st Congressional District.


The Racine Democrat said Friday that the Government Accountability Board has certified 933 of the 1,000 signatures he needs.


Other signatures remain under challenge, but officials have told him that once they receive affidavits from petition circulators to verify that the forms were properly filled out, he should have more than the required 1,000 signatures, Heckenlively said.


The affidavits were faxed to the board, but action can’t be taken until the originals arrive by mail, Heckenlively said, and that should happen by Monday.


Heckenlively said he’s moving on to campaign activities.


“Obviously, raising money is at the top of the list,” he said.
