Let’s make this the Live Thread. SC returns should accelerate. Want Haley to win big.
Here is the one from Politico.
1st SC CD- first two pcts from berekley follow the Charleston Pattern:
Berkeley 2/36 Scott- 428 62%
Thurmond- 263 38%
These two were Scott’s strongest in the primary...other three should be closer.
Precincts Reporting: 55 Of 2109 2%
Elaine Marshall (DEM)
Cal Cunningham (DEM)
Harold Johnson (REP)
Tim D’Annunzio (REP)
Greg Dority (REP)
Scott Cumbie (REP)
William (Bill) Randall (REP)
Bernie Reeves (REP)
Total 23/396 Scott- 2,959 70%
Thurmond- 1,255 30%
Tim Scott is holding a lead in early returns from his strongest counties....Berkeley 62% and Charleston 72%
He took Dorchester in the primary and this is continuing in the run-off:
Dorchester 10/60 Scott- 209 75%
Thurmond- 68 25%
It looks like the endorsements of Campbell, Parker, White, Korovsky for Thurmond may not be enough to stop Tim tonight!

You want to catch the primary results? This is where to go!
Here are the House race runoffs. Tim Scott is way ahead, Jeff Duncan holds a narrow lead, and Trey Gowdy is kicking RINO ass!
Per Fox News, AP is calling big victory for Haley 64-36!
In NC, RATS are nominating the weaker candidate, Marshall over Cunningham (backed by DNC) 62-38.
I don’t know why they don’t call it for Scott. He’s ahead of Thurmond by a margin of THREE to 1 with half the votes in. Thurmond can’t make up that difference.
AP called it for Trey Gowdy over Inglis by a similarly embarrassing three-to-one margin.
Congressional Quarterly has come close to calling it.
Tim Scott in S.C.
Nikki Haley in S.C.
Both in the lead and both endorsed by Sarah Palin
Here are the House results now:
District 1- with 83% reporting, Tim Scott leads with 69%.
District 3- with 79% reporting, Jeff Duncan posting 53%. It could still go either way.
District 4- With 75% reporting, Trey Gowdy leads with 73% against an incumbent who isn’t scandal-tainted.
Looks Like Duncan in SC3rd.. he had Club for Growth Endorsement, Like Tim Scott.
Scott won’t be the only Black Republican in the next Congress... the media is ignoring the brilliant Lt. Col. Allen West in FL.
In North Carolina, Harold Johnson has a 62%-to-38% lead with 59% of the precincts reporting.
Joe Wilson’s son appears to be the next Atty General of SC, too.
Allen West has charisma and conservatism, but he’s far from guaranteed victory. That disctrict has moved lefwward and is iffy.
Bill Randall in NC’s 13th is also black. Very nice guy! I hope he trounces Brad Miller in the general.
I live in the 1st but part of our town/county is in the 13th so he has visited our county GOP meetings.
I think West is 50-50 to take the Florida seat, and Ryan Frazier about the same odds to win a seat in Colorado (He should beat McCain’s candidate Lang Sias in the primary.)
District 3 remains undecided, although Jeff Duncan is leading Richard Cash. McCormick and Saluda counties haven’t reported yet.
I have no problems with either candidate, but prefer Cash as he’s more the outsider.
With district 3, I almost forgot that Anderson County still has many precincts out. That is Richard Cash’s home county.
I agree. West’s race is a tossup. I’d bet on him. Obama failed to do much better than Kerry did in the district (1 point better). West lost by only 10 despite little attention.
But 1 black Republican is now guaranteed.
There’s also State Sen Bill Hardiman who faces a crowded primary for a safe seat in Michigan.
Bye bye to you Inglis.
Not good news for Linds in 2014.
District 3 may be decided. With nearly all precincts reporting, Jeff Duncan has a 51% to 49% lead.
Another African American Conservative Republican running is
Starr Parker in Calif.
From Michigan (where I’m about 35 miles away from the district)
Incumbent Congressman Ehlers has just endorsed a fellow Rino in Michigan... The Devos family is backing 29 yr old State Rep. Justin Amash, as has former Sen. Spence Abraham. (And the news today is that Ron Paul has endorsed him as well).
Hardiman seems like a good guy (and has a picture of himself with Sean Hannity on the front page of his web site) but I don’t know. My state rep (who’s a Club For Growth member) has endorsed Amash...
We’ll have to see.
There could be 5 black conservative Republicans in Congress next year even without any major upsets.
Tim Scott was as good as elected to Congress tonight; if Bill Hardiman wins the MI-03 primary (which he’s favored to do), he’ll be as good as elected to Congress that night as well. Allen West in FL-22 and Ryan Frazier in CO-07 should have at least even odds of winning the general in their politically marginal districts. And don’t forget about Vernon Parker, who should be competitive in a very crowded primary field to replace Shadegg in his AZ district (where the primary winner is guaranteed victory in November).
There haven’t been 4 or 5 black Republicans in Congress since the 1870s. It’s about time.
Add William Randall NC-13 to that list.
She has Palin’s endorsement, and is a “Star” but the district was 80-20 Obama in 2008.
A better shot for ‘diversity” is State Rep Van Tran in the Cal 47th District— was 60-38 Obama, but in 2004 50-49 Bush.
I did forget all about Vernon Parker. ;D
I merely neglected Fraizer. He should take his primary against Lang Sias.
Definitely agree on Vernon Parker— he has sheriff Arpaio’s endorsement, and in a multi-candidate race could well stand out enough to come in first. Main competition seems to be Ben Quayle (Dan’s son) who has $$$.
What say you AZ folk?
In 15 minutes, the polls close in Utah. That’s a big one, the battle between Mike Lee and Tim Bridgewater.
And there’s Issac Hayes (not Chef) running against Jesse Jackson Jr. here in IL, he’s a good guy. And likely there are a few others running in safe rats seats.
But we were talking about those that can possibly win. Parker and Hayes unfortunately have no chance but do us a service by opposing the incumbent rat slime.
Yes, I think Van Tran may have a chance.
I was going to reply to your earlier post re: Bill Randall. I think he’s got the best chance among the black Republican longshots (Charles Lollar, etc.), but he’s still a longshot. Brad Miller will be very tough to beat in that district, but it is not outside the realm of possibility.
George W. Bush got 50% and 49% in the NC-13 (as currently drawn) in 2000 and 2004, respectively. Obviously, the districts voters arent quite as allergic to the GOP label as one would think looking at Millers winning percentages (keep in mind that the presidential vote is a far better predicter of how a district will vote when the environment turns against the incumbent than his past winning percentages). This is not a presidential election year, and Miller wont be able to count on a large black turnout (his district is 30% black), or probably on a very large college-student turnout. Burr will be wiping the floor with Marshall in the rural counties in the district (i.e., everything but its portion of Raleigh and Greensboro). Under this environment, a generic conservative Republican would likely win the district fairly comfortably over a generic liberal Democrat. Of course, Brad Miller is a somebody, and Bill Randall is (at least currently) a nobody, but that Heineman guy who beat Congressman Price in 1994 was completely unknown. If Randall beats Miller in 2010, it would not be remembered as one of the five biggest upsets of the past 20 years, but it would still be a huge upset.
You should clarify that you are referring to Star Parker, not Vernon Parker, in this post. If Vernon Parker wins the GOP nomination in AZ, he will win hands down in November.
Fred Heineman wasn’t a complete unknown. He was the longtime (1979-94) Raleigh Police Chief. I just learned he died in March at the age of 80 (I hate that AP discontinued its daily obit roundups, they often miss former members of Congress).
I give Issac Hayes credit for standing up for the cause.
