COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -
Lexington County's Katrina Shealy is back on the ballot to face incumbent Sen. Jake Knotts for the District 23 seat in what politicos see as the hottest political race in the state this November.
Shealy's camp says she received notice from the state Election Commission on Wednesday that she'll be on the ballot as an independent.
According to her website, Shealy submitted 3,200 signatures to the Election Commission to ask them to place her on the ballot as a petition candidate.
Shealy's quest for a spot on the ballot is a story of many twists and turns.
Back in May, Shealy was kicked off the June primary ballot after a ruling by the state Supreme Court that also removed 250+ other candidates for failing to file certain forms.
Shealy fought to have her name restored to the ballot before the primary through a protest hearing with the state Republican Party, but the state Election Commission ruled the could not be restored because a deadline set by the Supreme Court had already passed.
With Shealy back on the ballot, the battle of Knotts vs. Shealy will enter its next phase. Shealy unsuccessfully tried to run on the GOP ticket against Knotts back in 2008. She even had the backing of former Gov. Mark Sanford in that race.
