The oh-so-brief conservative push to get fringe cafe owner Tamyra d’Ippolito on the Indiana ballot as the Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate seems to have hit the reef. Reid Wilson reports:

An official in Marion Co. (IN) tells Hotline OnCall d’Ippolito turned in just 3 signatures in the 7th CD, the district with the highest percentage of Dem voters. The noon deadline has passed, meaning d’Ippolito failed to meet the requirements to get on the ballot. She would have been required to submit 4,500 signatures, including at least 500 from each of the state’s 9 districts.

If she falls short in just one district, she’s off the ballot. It’s been a bad afternoon for d’Ippolito backers, who thought just an hour ago that she had a chance. Still, Erick Erickson of RedState tells me it was worth the effort.

“It was worth it just to freak out the Democrats,” said Erickson. “The reality is the information got on the radar late on the holiday before the noon deadline in the middle of a snow storm. But Proctor & Gamble is sponsoring the Olympics, so I’m happy to boost Pepto-Bismol sales.”
