Carl Lewis Denied
On Thursday, a federal judge ruled that former Olympian Carl Lewis is not eligible to run for New Jersey state Senate because he doesn’t meet the four-year residency requirement. Dems argued that Lewis had a home in California because of his work, but should be allowed to run in New Jersey because he also has maintained homes there. He plans to appeal this ruling.On Wednesday, Aa federal appeals court in Philadelphia will hear Lewis’ appeal Wednesday.
