Third party candidate on ballot for Iowa governor

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A former Des Moines school board member will be on the ballot for governor as a third-party candidate.

Jonathan Narcisse announced Tuesday he had been certified by the Iowa secretary of state's office to run as the Iowa Party candidate.

Narcisse attempted to run as a Democrat in the primary election, but the secretary of state's office ruled his nomination petitions were incomplete. His attempts to overturn the ruling in the courts were unsuccessful. That meant that state Sen. Jack Hatch was the only Democrat running for governor.

Republican Gov. Terry Branstad is running for an unprecedented sixth non-consecutive term.

Narcisse has owned a number of publications, including the Iowa Bystander. He served on the Des Moines School Board for two years. He also ran for governor in 2010.
