Rehearing Tuesday for Carl Lewis’ ballot appearance

    It’s back to court for Carl Lewis, who won’t have any trouble making a case for residency there.

    The U.S. Court of Appeals has issued a rehearing on whether he can remain on the ballot for New Jersey Senate. It was just last week a panel of judges overruled Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno and allowed his name on the November ballot.

    Guadagno says the Olympian doesn’t meet the residency requirements to run for Senate, and Republicans agreed, calling for the rehearing set for tomorrow in Philadelphia. The same panel of three judges will review the case.
