A self-proclaimed Tea Party organization seeking to become an official political party in Michigan plans to run a limited slate of candidates this November.

A list submitted to state election officials and released Tuesday by the secretary of state’s office says The Tea Party has not nominated a candidate for governor.

But The Tea Party says it did nominate candidates for secretary of state and attorney general at a convention last weekend. The group also nominated candidates for two of Michigan’s 15 congressional districts, six of 38 seats in the state Senate and eight of 110 seats in the state House.

Several Michigan tea partiers say the organization seeking to get on the ballot is a sham. They’re trying to keep the Tea Party name off the ballot.
