It was a small victory for Carl Lewis on Thursday. The federal appeals court ruled that his name should appear on a primary ballot, but it is still unclear whether he will be allowed to run. The U.S. District Court will now decide whether a four-year residence requirement will violate the civil rights of Lewis. The state Supreme Court may also rule in the matter, as it considers an appeal by Lewis. It all began when Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno ruled he couldn’t run. Lewis has owned a home in New Jersey for over four years, but voted in California in 2009. The state rules say you must live in New Jersey for four years prior to running. Lewis grew up in New Jersey.
