Federal court ruling keeps Thurmond on November ballot

Should Paul Thurmond win the contest to fill the Senate seat formerly held by Lt. Governor Glenn McConnell next month, he'll probably have jumped through more hoops than anyone trying to overcome backroom political dealings to win an election since his father won his U.S. Senate seat as a write-in candidate in the 1950s.

Thus far, Thurmond has waged a spring primary, won a state court ruling and then won fall primary and a run-off contests for the seat.

Barring another bizarre legal motion, UFO abduction or something equally strange (as if this chain of events hasn't been strange enough), Thurmond will face Democrat Paul Tinkler, who was silent on the federal lawsuit, next month.
