Ex-U.S. Rep. Jim Traficant’s political comeback may already be over.

The Trumbull County Board of Elections will meet at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday to determine how many valid signatures Traficant has on his nominating petitions.

If the petitions Traficant supporters collected in Mahoning, Portage and Summit counties are an indication, Traficant’s bid to run in November as an independent candidate for the 17th Congressional District is done.

Portions of those three counties and Trumbull make up the congressional district.
