I think it will be Scott or Gowdy. Mulvaney is up in Indian Land, SC and is too removed from Columbia. I’m guessing Scott just because the man is rock solid conservative.
I hope Tim Scott gets it and immediately forms the Senate Black Caucus with himself as the inaugural member.
Scott now, Gowdy against Graham later.
Gowdy and Graham are both upstate; whatever regional loyalties for Graham might come into play Gowdy might have a decent chance to overpower. Upstate voters are as conservative as they come, and they had the good sense to dump Bob Inglis when he went wet.
I’m still surprised Graham wasn’t primaried out the last time around.
