Republican candidate Brian Charles Vaeth's and running mate Duane Gerald Davis Sr.'s quest for office have apparently been flushed down the drain.
Davis made headlines in 2011 when he allegedly placed a toilet, an electronic transmitter and a cellphone on the grounds of the historic Baltimore County Courthouse in Towson, according to The Baltimore Sun.
Vaeth and Davis were disqualified on Tuesday because they failed to meet voter registration requirements to run, according to The Capital Gazette. The paper quoted Jared DeMarinis, director of candidacy and campaign finance for the Maryland State Board of Elections.
The ticket's disqualification means the race for the GOP nomination has been whittled to four tickets. Edgewater real estate broker Larry Hogan, Arnold Del. Ron George, Harford County Executive David Craig and Charles County businessman Charles Lollar round out the GOP field, the Gazette reported.
The 2014 primary election is scheduled for June 24.
