EDISON - Olympic medal winner Carl Lewis has been told he cannot run for the New Jersey state Senate.

The nine-time gold medalist has been ordered to remove his name from the state's ballot for the June Democratic primary because he apparently failed to meet residency requirements.

"As of the constitutional cut-off, Lewis did not yet own his home in New Jersey, did not otherwise live in New Jersey," said Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno, who made the decision.

Lewis, who appealed the move, can take his appeal back to court.
