South Carolina Special Congressional Election Today

By Elisha Dorfsmith

South Carolina voters in Congressional District 1 head to the polls today for a special election to fill the vacancy left by current Senator Tim Scott.

On the Republican ticket is former South Carolina governor Mark Sanford who has been shunned by the GOP establishment for controversial personal activities among other things.  Sanford has seen a jump in recent polls after endorsements from Ron Paul, Rand Paul and Freedomworks.

An interesting side note, Democratic candidate Elizabeth Colbert Busch is listed on the ballot twice.

Regardless of how you feel about Sanford’s personal life, Sanford is the clear liberty candidate (look at his voting record for proof).

You can follow election results here as they come in:
