Election panel keeps Santorum on Indiana ballot

The Indiana Election Commission is keeping Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum on the ballot.

The commission voted 4-0 Friday to keep Santorum on the ballot after Marion County officials determined he had collected enough signatures. The county's Board of Voter Registration had previously disqualified Santorum for falling eight signatures short in the 7th Congressional District.

The four-member panel is also hearing challenges against candidates including President Barack Obama and Republican Sen. Richard Lugar.
