A US Supreme Court justice temporarily blocked a federal appeals ruling that might help former Bridgewater Associates Chief Executive David McCormick in his too-close-to-call Republican Senate primary fight with celebrity doctor Mehmet Oz in Pennsylvania.

Justice Samuel Alito issued the administrative stay, which applies until the high court acts on a request for a longer halt, in a separate clash over a disputed race for a position as a county judge. The appeals court ruling said a US civil rights law required mail-in ballots to be counted in the judgeship race even if they didn’t include the needed date notation.
