Judge rules Warren Evans can stay on the ballot

Posted: Updated:
(WJBK) - A judge ruled Friday Warren Evans will stay on the August primary ballot for Wayne County Executive.

A Canton Township man field a lawsuit earlier this week questioning Evan's eligibility to run because of his residency. A judge ruled the lawsuit was filed too late and the case was dismissed. Another Wayne County Executive candidate, Phil Cavenaugh, filed a similar lawsuit Thursday.

Meanwhile, a new poll was released to Fox 2 Thursday showing Warren Evans leads the race for office.

The former Detroit Police Chief is in the lead with 30.4 percent, followed by Westland Mayor Bill Wild with 15.7 percent.

Current State Representative and former Wayne County Commissioner Phil Cavanaugh came in third with 9.6 percent.

Polling in fourth place with 6.7 percent is incumbent Robert Ficano. Polling in fifth place is "a candidate not named here" with 4.3 percent. Pulling in sixth place with 4.1 percent is County Commissioner Kevin McNamara.

Undecided voters ring in at 29.2 percent.
