U.S. Rep. Tammy Baldwin will remain on the ballot after a challenge to her nomination papers is rejected.

The Wisconsin Government Accountability Board on Wednesday unanimously rejected a complaint filed by the Young Republicans of Dane County alleging that she wrongly listed her campaign office as her address on the papers instead of her voting address.

State election officials have long allowed Baldwin, who is openly gay, to use her campaign office as her address since she’s received threats since first elected in 1998.

The board did deny ballot access to Paris Procopis, a Republican candidate for the 13th state Assembly district, for not gathering enough signatures.

Consideration of other ballot challenges is ongoing.
