GOP Primary Canceled After All Candidates Disqualified

Republicans in Oconee County, South Carolina "have canceled their primary after officials say a South Carolina Supreme Court ruling left no qualified candidates for the ballot," the AP reports.

The Columbia State notes "the commotion comes a day after the high court ruled that the Republican Party in Florence County hadn't adhered to a May ruling requiring that only candidates who submitted financial and candidacy paperwork at the same time are eligible for the election."

Nearly 200 candidates across the state "were dropped from ballots after the court's initial ruling -- and attorneys have contended the number would have been higher, had party leaders in all counties complied."
