South Carolina Dems to Stephen Colbert: No Ballot For You
Stephen Colbert's nascent and satirical presidential campaign came to an abrupt end on Thursday as the Democratic Party in South Carolina turned down his application to get on the primary ballot in his native state.
South Carolina is the only state where Colbert sought to get on the ballot. He did not try getting on the ballot as a Republican, which costs $35,000. The Democratic ballot cost $2,500, which Colbert paid by the deadline.
