Two-fer Tuesday as Both Nikky Haley and Tim Scott Win Big in South Carolina

June 22, 2010

Nikki Haley

Tim Scott

Big runoff wins on Tuesday night for both Nikki Haley in the South Carolina Governor’s Primary and Tim Scott in the SC-01 Congressional District.

Haley easily knocked off Gresham Barrett, 65%-35%, and, barring any mishaps, should meet little resistance in conservative South Carolina this November.  As Governor, Haley will be very influential in the early South Carolina Presidential Primary, possibly determining which Republican candidate will face off against Barack Obama in 2012.

Scott also cruised to an easy  68%-32% win over former Senator Strom Thurmond’s son Paul.  He will face a more difficult race this November, but is definitely up to the challenge.

Both wins are huge for the GOP which is desperate for more diversity as well as strong candidates who can win in November.
