  1. Good news

    I am not a republican, however, I am glad she will win tonight. I am tired of crooked politicians that will not run on the issues, but will do the Lee Atwater deception to try to win. I am glad it did not work. Let us get to the issues and move on to build this nation on solid principles and integrity.

    Oh my! Are we surprised that the cheating spouse is winning? It IS SC after all. What else can we expect from these people down there.
    Good luck to those who are not demented like dimwit!!

    Barrett knew this was the high probability; he should have saved SC the expense of a run-off election. Congrats, Haley.

    It just goes to show that the people of SC are easily fooled and less educated than most Americans!
