( – On Friday, President Joe Biden’s reelection campaign missed a key deadline which could lead to him not appearing on Ohio’s general election ballot. 

Frank LaRose, the Republican Secretary of State in Ohio, had notified Democratic officials that the current schedule has their national convention occurring after the deadline in Ohio for certifying a presidential candidate. As he wrote in a letter to Ohio Democratic Party Chairwoman Liz Walters, the deadline in the state is currently August 7, which would place the DNC 12 days after the deadline as it is set to take place on August 19, 2024. 

ABC News first obtained the letter. 

Paul Disantis, the legal counsel of LaRose also wrote in the letter noting that either the DNC needed to change the date of their nominating convention to bring it before the deadline, or the Ohio General Assembly needed to create an exemption before the new law taking place on May 9, 2024. 

The Biden campaign did not respond to a request for comments from Fox News Digital on Sunday. However, he did tell ABC News that they were now “monitoring” the Ohio situation and that they were confident that Biden would be able to be on the ballot of all 50 states. 

The Democratic National Convention is where the official selection of a presidential candidate for the party is made. Before the letter, an internal memo had shown that the Democratic Party was concerned about how their voter registration efforts could be benefiting the former President.
