'''November 2, 2007''': Stephen Colbert will not be on the ballot for the South Carolina Democratic party's presidential primary. The host of Comedy Centrals "Colbert Report" had the application and $2,500 fee filed less than an hour before the deadline. Carol Fowler, chairwoman of the state Democratic party, said the party "really agonized over this because they really like him, they love his show and everyone thinks it's wonderful that he cares about us."<ref>[http://www.themoneytimes.com/news/20071102/colbert_wont_be_on_primary_ballot-id-1012499.html ''Colbert won't be on primary ballot'', The Money Times, Nov. 2, 2007]</ref>

South Carolina may introduce statewide recall election

COLUMBIA, South Carolina: Senator Mike Rose is backing an effort to have the state of South Carolina allow for citizens to recall government officials at any and all levels. With the potential impeachment of Governor Mark Sanford, Rose has picked the prime time to bring the issue to the attention of the state. Rose is also backing an idea that would allow for initiative and referendum on the state level. Currently, South Carolina does not allow this process.

Rose has justified his ideas and proposals by stating the voters need to have the same power as the legislature when removing public officials from office. The issue will rear its head in the next South Carolina Legislative Session.[1]
