• GOP Makes HISTORY: Tim Scott Got More Votes Than Lindsey Graham In South Carolina

    South Carolina Republicans voted Tim Scott to the U.S. Senate for a full term on Tuesday. Scott’s victory marks the first time South Carolina has sent a black senator to Washington D.C. since Reconstruction.

    Tim Scott was appointed senator in 2013 by Governor Nikki Hailey, when Sen. Jim DeMint retired.

    Tim Scott’s election is a repudiation of the lame line regurgitated by liberal Democrats that minorities can’t win elections in the south.

    “The South has not always been the friendliest place for African-Americans,” said Louisiana’s sorry excuse for Senator Mary Landrieu. Just today, liberal MSNBC contributor Jimmy Williams said “if we did not have an African-American president in the White House as we speak right now, Mary Landrieu would not be in trouble. Kay Hagan would not be in any kind of trouble. Michelle Nunn would win overwhelmingly, and maybe Alison Lundergan Grimes would do well.”

    Or perhaps the voters in those states don’t won’t to vote for those candidates, regardless of their race or gender?

    These liberal hacks can’t accept the fact that Republican voters support political candidates based on their ideas, not their ethnicity or sex.

    For example, more Republicans in South Carolina–a former Confederate state–voted for a black man, Tim Scott, than voted for pasty white Lindsey Graham.

    Over 80,000 more votes were cast for Tim Scott than Lindsey Graham. 80,000. And with most of the votes counted, Tim Scott is by far the most popular Republican in South Carolina.

    Of course not.

    Hell, Nikki Haley, who’s of Indian descent, also received more votes than Lindsey Graham.

    Palmetto State Republicans made history tonight. Liberals can stop it with their race-baiting and smear campaigns against southern voters.
