A state court judge ordered Secretary of State John Gale (R) to place State Auditor Kate Witek on the ballot as a Democrat in her race for re-election.

In a deal brokered by the Attorney General's office, Gale has agreed to list Witek as a Democrat and not appeal the court ruling.
In exchange, Witek will only be listed once on the November ballot, even though she submitted sufficient signatures to also run as an Independent.

Witek lost for Lieutenant Governor in the GOP primary earlier this year, and switched parties just last week. Under the state's "sore loser" law, Gale said he doesn't believe Witek should be allowed to run for another office in November after losing for a different one earlier this year. The Dems vow to bring an immediate lawsuit to place Witek on the ballot, saying state law permitted them to name Witek as the nominee as last weekend's state convention.

State Auditor Kate Witek switched parties Friday from the GOP to the Democrats, complaining to the Lincoln Star-Journal of a desire by the Republican leaders to have "total control of everything ... [with] a good-old-boy handful of people making the decisions. in the state to get elected rather than govern. Witek, a two-term State Auditor and former State Senator -- was Congressman Tom Osborne's runningmate for Lieutenant Governor in this year's GOP primary. Witek, 51, is a lifelong Republican and staunch pro-life advocate. The conservative Witek was often at odds, however, with her statehouse GOP colleagues as she was unafraid to criticize Republicans and Democrats alike in her capacity as State Auditor. She was largely responsible for bringing down the GOP State Treasurer two years ago in an office funding scandal. Witek joined her new party at the Democratic State Convention on Saturday, where she was named as the Democratic nominee for State Auditor by a 171-106 vote -- as no Democrat had filed for the office. The split at the convention came from Democrats concerned Witek was far too conservative to adequately represent her new party. While the State GOP Chair offered only a terse "no comment" on the defection, former runningmate Osborne wished her well: "We appreciate Kate's experience and expertise and we respect her opinions and views."
