The Democratic National Committee has allocated $225,000 for legal action against Anderson's ballot access, and suits already are planned in Massachusetts , New York, Ohio, North Carolina, and Tennessee.
"For one who has lost in [the primary election] process," said Ronald Eastman , the party's general counsel, "to . . . generally ignore it, to get on the general election ballot, then the whole direct primary process suffers."
As for the Republicans, "We want to outcampaign Anderson, not outmaneuver him in the courtroom," a party spokesman told the Washington Post.
