Candidate disqualification

Due to the filing dispute in South Carolina, Shirley was removed from the ballot just before the primary. He and four other candidates filed a lawsuit against the state of South Carolina and the State Election Commission in an attempt to get the primary delayed, but ultimately failed when a Federal Judge struck down their request.[3]
