McCain Got on Other Ballots Through FEC Matching Funds

Yesterday I had a post on how John McCain used his federal matching funds authorization as a means to gain access to the Ohio ballot. This saved McCain massive amounts of time and money, as Ohio has a particularly complicated ballot access process.

The DNC filed their complaint with the FEC this morning (viewable here). In the complaint, the DNC cited three other examples of places where McCain also gained access to the ballot in Kentucky, Delaware, and Montana using the FEC authorization in lieu of campaign staff and cash resources.

This is not an exhaustive list of states, as Ohio was not included. I look forward to seeing what, if any, other states beyond Ohio, Kentucky, Delaware, and Montana John McCain used his FEC matching funds authorization to gain ballot access.
