The group calling itself "The Tea Party" is headed to court to try and get its candidates on the November ballot.

An attorney for the group filed a suit with the state court of appeals Wednesday.

It says the board of canvassers should have voted to put the party on the ballot earlier this week.

The vote was split with two democrats for it, and two republicans against it.

Republicans and tea party activists say "The Tea Party" is trying to confuse voters, and take away votes from their candidates.
