The Mississippi Supreme Court has declined to hear an appeal from Shawn O'Hara of Hattiesburg, who wants to
run for two statewide offices in the 2011 election.
In March, the state Democratic Party executive committee refused to allow O'Hara's name on the Aug. 2 primary ballot in
the state treasurer's race.
O'Hara had already filed to run for Mississippi treasurer as a Democrat and for governor in the general election as a Reform Party candidate.
State law says a candidate may run for only one statewide office
at a time.
A Hinds County judge this month threw out O'Hara's complaint.
The Supreme Court Friday denied O'Hara's petition.
