    Why would you omit Steve Hoffman’s US Senate candidacy? FreedomSocialists collected all those signatures and were the first to file.

      Steve Hoffman’s filing was accidentally missed in the original list posted earlier in the week. The final list also did not include his name until we learned of the oversight Saturday evening. It was added to the list at that time.
