LANSING, Mich. — Republican gubernatorial candidate Ryan Kelley is free to campaign in Michigan after his arrest earlier this month for his participation in the Jan. 6 insurrection, but a federal judge ruled he is not allowed to carry a concealed weapon.

Kelley, who is one of five Republican candidates still standing after massive petition fraud, was arrested at his home near Grand Rapids by the FBI. He is charged with four misdemeanor counts.

As it stands, Kelley is free on a personal recognizance bond and is allowed to campaign in Michigan, although he is unable to leave the state except for his upcoming hearing in Washington D.C. in July.

The choice to prevent Kelley from carrying a gun while the proceedings are ongoing is standard procedure for someone awaiting trial.
