TRENTON - (AP) - Olympic track star Carl Lewis is trying toget back into the race for a state senate seat in New Jersey.

Last week, Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno - who also serves as NewJersey's secretary of state - ruled Lewis isn't eligible to run inthe 8th legislative district because he hasn't lived in New Jerseyfor the last four years.

State and federal courts have agreed with that ruling. But onTuesday, Lewis appealed the state ruling to the New Jersey SupremeCourt.

Meanwhile, the U.S. 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals agreed to takeoral arguments on the case in Philadelphia on Wednesday.
