The only Democratic candidate who filed to run against Rep. Ron Packard (R-Carlsbad) was declared ineligible Tuesday because he did not submit enough signatures with his application. George E. Hollis, an optical engineer, submitted the $1,207 filing fee by the deadline last Friday, but he was nine signatures short of the number required to qualify for the race. The registrar's office said Hollis had 31 valid signatures and the application requires 40.

Friday was the deadline for candidates seeking congressional, state legislative and county offices to file nomination papers for the June 5 primary election. The deadline is extended until 5 p.m. Wednesday in cases where incumbents failed to file for reelection. The extension does not apply to state legislative districts in which the incumbent did not file a declaration of intent to seek reelection in February.
