GO Haley, Scott, and Lee!
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.
