“Cesar Chavez to be removed from ballot, plans to appeal”

AZ Central:

A judge ruled Tuesday that Cesar Chavez, the former Republican who changed his name from Scott Fistler, will be removed from the primary ballot in the 7th Congressional District because hundreds of his signatures were invalid.

Chavez, who acted as his own attorney in a hearing which veered from comical antics to tearful testimony, vowed to appeal the decision to the Arizona Supreme Court.

He asked supporters to “funnel money” to his campaign and find him legal counsel.
