Ravenel Seeks Political Comeback After Prison

Former South Carolina state treasurer Thomas Ravenel (R), who resigned from office after his arrest on drug charges, said he is running as an independent for the U.S. Senate currently held by Lindsey Graham in South Carolina, the AP reports.

"Ravenel said he knows the 10 months he served in prison after pleading guilty to buying cocaine for himself and friends in 2007 makes him an imperfect messenger, but he says he has the right ideas to save the country."
