Ousted from Senate race, Carl Lewis to talk plans

    Carl Lewis is expected to say what he’ll do now that a court has knocked him off the ballot in a New Jersey state Senate race.

    After a series of court opinions, a federal court agreed in a ruling yesterday that he doesn’t qualify.

    The move took him off the ballot with less than seven weeks before his election against Republican incumbent Dawn Addiego. He could still appeal the decision — though time is running out.

    WHYY’s Phil Gregory is headed to an 11 a.m. news conference where Lewis is set to announce what he plans to do next.
