    I haven’t read the complaint, but my guess is that the party in question has not qualified for “recognized” status on the state ballot. If so, then it’s not a matter of viewpoint discrimination, but a matter of whether the state’s regulations are reasonable. Given that recognizing a party means also recognizing another “line” for them on many election documents, which becomes costly and unwieldy if every putative party can claim recognition despite lacking even a fairly minimal level of support, I suspect that this regulation would be held to be reasonable.
