      WASHINGTON — The U.S. Supreme Court on Friday refused
      to step in to a dispute between presidential candidate
      Dennis Kucinich and the Texas Democratic Party,
      allowing the state to print primary ballots without
      Kucinich's name.

      Kucinich sued the party over a loyalty oath that all
      candidates must sign to be on the ballot.

      He and supporter Willie Nelson objected to a section
      requiring that a presidential candidate "fully
      support" the party's eventual nominee.

      Lower courts also ruled against Kucinich.

      Texas said the deadline to print absentee ballots for
      the March 4 primary is today.

      Kucinich's campaign said Friday that it would return
      to the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to argue its
      case.
