Looks like Tamyra d'Ippolito won't qualify to be on the ballot in Indiana, which means the state party will get to choose its nominee. TPM reports:

Marion County, the home of Indianapolis, has the 7th District located entirely within its borders -- so if d'Ippolito doesn't have at least 500 signatures in this one county alone, getting on the ballot would be out of the question.

"We received this morning three signatures. And that is all we have received, so she will not qualify to be on the ballot," said [Democratic member of the Board of Voter Registration in Marion County Terry] Burns. He also added: "Once the noon deadline passes, that's it." In addition, only two of the signatures came from the 7th District -- the other was from the 5th District, which is partially located within Marion County.
