Newt Gingrich may not make the Utah primary ballot June 26 because his campaign's $500 check to the state bounced.
The Salt Lake City Tribune reports:
Utah Elections Director Mark Thomas said a designated agent for the Gingrich campaign brought the filing papers and a check for $500 in March, but after the check was deposited, the state was notified by the bank that the check had bounced. He said the office has tried to contact the Gingrich campaign through the telephone number and email provided on the application, but have not received a response.
Gingrich hast to send the money to Utah by Apr. 20 to appear on the Utah ballot, the paper reports. Mitt Romney is expected to win the contest handily whether Gingrich is on the ballot or not.
