SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- An effort to block a republican primary in the race for mayor of Syracuse will go on. Party leaders are trying to keep Ian Hunter from securing a spot on the September 10th ballot.

A review by the Board of Elections found 110 signatures of his petitions were ineligible. That leaves Hunter with a margin of just two signatures above the required number for a ballot spot.

The party is expected to go to court to urge a judge to toss out at least three more signatures. That would keep Hunter off the ballot and eliminate a primary.

Currently, the party has Chairman Tom Dadey's name as a placeholder in the mayor's race.

No decision has been made on who the eventual candidate will be.
