South Carolina Working Families Party Will Sue to Get on 2006 Ballot

Published on July 21, 2006, by in General.

The South Carolina Working Families Party recently completed its petition (to qualify as a party) successfully. However, the State Election Commission said that notwithstanding that it is now a qualified party, it is too late for the party to run any candidates in this year’s election. This ruling flies in the face of a federal court decision from 1996, won by the Natural Law Party of South Carolina over the same issue. The Working Families Party expects to file a lawsuit soon. Assuming the party wins the lawsuit, it will probably not have any of its own members running, but instead will most likely cross-endorse some major party nominees (Democrats are more likely to be cross-endorsed than Republicans).
