Atlantic Clerk rejects half of messenger ballots

Atlantic County Clerk Edward McGettigan has rejected 361 of 787 applications for messenger ballots filed for the Atlantic City Democratic mayoral primary. Most of the messenger ballots are believed to have been collected by remnants of former City Council President Craig Callaway's political machine; Callaway is in federal prison following his conviction on corruption charges. Councilman Martin Small is challenging longtime Callaway rival, Mayor Lorenzo Langford, in the primary.
