Coroner Bill Thrower comes up short, does not qualify as independent

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

Muscogee County Coroner Bill Thrower did not get enough signatures to run for re-election.

Thrower needed to turn in close to 6,000 signatures from registered voters in Columbus by noon Monday to qualify to run as an independent in the November elections.

Thrower spent most of his Sunday in Lakebottom Park getting signatures on his petition.

He was disqualified from the coroner's race after his $1800 check to pay his qualifying fee bounced. 

Thrower will likely run as a write-in candidate on the November ballot against Buddy Bryan.

Count on News Leader 9 to continue to follow the latest developments in the coroner's race.
