Colbert Running for President (in South Carolina)

Stephen Colbert announced he was launching his second run for president in South Carolina, CNN reports.

Said Colbert: "I'm proud to announce I plan to form an exploratory committee to lay the groundwork for my candidacy in the United States of South Carolina."

Rick Hasen: "Since it is too late for Colbert to get on the ballot in South Carolina and the state prohibits write-in votes, it is not clear what a candidacy means here. Nor is it clear what it means to be a candidate 'in the United States of South Carolina.'"
