In a complete reversal from what each of their campaigns were arguing Tuesday, mayoral candidates Ja’Mal Green and Willie Wilson and their supporters on Wednesday withdrew challenges to each other’s petitions to get on the Feb. 28 ballot. With the motions to withdraw submitted, Green and Wilson have secured their spots on next year’s ballot.
The motions to withdraw the challenges come just one day after both Green’s and Wilson’s campaigns argued for hours before a hearing officer for why the other should be kicked off the ballot, lobbing accusations of fake signatures and patterns of fraud and calling into question multiple people’s residencies.
