Interesting news from South Carolina overnight. South Carolina voters selected Tim Scott as the Republican nominee for SC's 1st Congressional District. Scott happens to be a Black gentleman who was running against Strom Thurmond’s son . . . and beat him by a 68% to 32% margin . . . among South Carolina Republican primary voters.
The First District has elected a Republican for three decades. So unless those raaaacists discover that he’s Black, his chances are good. ;^)
In all seriousness, I am glad to see this. The House has lacked a Black conservative voice since the retirement of J. C. Watts. It looks like South Carolina will remedy that.
