Prominent conservative radio talk show host Larry Elder has considered taking legal action after he was excluded from California’s gubernatorial recall election. Over the weekend, the state released a list of 41 candidates who qualified for the race. The list did not include Elder.

The Republican said he received a letter from California’s secretary of state, which said he did not qualify because of “incomplete redacted and unredacted income tax returns”. In a tweet on Sunday, Elder said his campaign submitted over 200 pages of tax returns and met all requirements to be a candidate.

Elder went on to say he may file a lawsuit if the secretary of state doesn’t reverse her decision.
