Skip to comments.Group Says It Can Extend US Senate Race In South Carolina
Posted on 02/18/2014 9:53:02 AM PST by cotton1706
A GOP group is claiming to have uncovered an iron clad method of extending South Carolinas Republican runoff season in 2014 ostensibly giving the top challenger to liberal U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (RINO-SC) extra time to campaign for the GOP nomination.
Currently, if no candidate receives more than 50 percent of the vote during the initial primary election, a runoff between the top two candidates is held two weeks later.
The group Carolina Conservatives United says it has discovered something that will extend (the runoff period) to sixty days.
Im not allowed to provide details beyond this at this point, and Im fully aware that when it comes to fighting establishment players like Lindsey Graham, it would be foolish to assume that anything is certain, Ben Howe a board member of the group wrote this week. But we believe there is a hope that the time for South Carolina voters to pick, the time needed for candidates to up their game, could be longer than anyone had expected. And that could be a game changer.
All we can think is that the group will attempt to invoke a 45-day rule regarding absentee ballots which added to the existing two week period would equal 59 days.
Other than that we have no idea what the group might have up its sleeve
although if its iron clad method adversely impacts the electoral fortunes of Graham (which it could) weve got no problem with extending the runoff schedule by an extra month-and-a-half.

I’m curious as to why anyone would vote for Little Lindsey. Who is his constituency?
Really? You’d expect an incumbant to just “follow” that, lock step like it were some codified requirement?

Lelsie Grhamnesty will...just...ignore...it (and the Party will follow!)
But, it also gives more time for a larger turnout which always favors Liberals and incumbents. It will give Graham more time to patronize people by “visiting” with them and showing them how much he “cares for them”. No, no. I like short campaigns. Strike while the iron is hot.

Mostly people who just vote for the name they’ve heard before.
