The Republican Party of Minnesota is listing only Trump on its ballot. That drew a lawsuit from Lake Elmo voter James Martin and Roque “Rocky” De La Fuente, a businessman and frequent candidate who's challenging Trump for the GOP nomination.

But Chief Justice Loire Gildea wrote in an order Thursday that that the petitioners' claims lack legal merit.

The decision clears the way for early voting in Minnesota's March 3 primary to begin as scheduled on Friday next week.
