Attorney General opinion regarding Petition Candidates

There was some concern about some language in the South Carolina Supreme Court ruling that could be interpreted to prevent any candidate that was ruled ineligible to appear on the June 12 primary from running as a petition candidate on the November gerneral election ballot as well.

So, the Attorney General of South Carolina was asked for an official opinion on the matter.

The opinion confirms that those candidates who were kicked off the June ballot are eligible to run as petition candidates in November.
