    Tim Scott wins US Senate race and is 1st black to win statewide in SC since Reconstruction

    COLUMBIA, South Carolina — South Carolina voters have sent Republican Tim Scott back to the U.S. Senate, making him the first black candidate to win a statewide race since just after the Civil War. Scott was declared the winner based on projections from exit poll data.

    Scott has served in the U.S. Senate since January 2013, appointed to the post by Gov. Nikki Haley after Jim DeMint resigned. He has spent his time quietly building support back home and expanding his base from Charleston. His seat will be up for re-election for a full term in 2016. Scott is also the first African-American senator from the South since Reconstruction.

    A historic achievement! Congrats to Scott for this.

    Hopefully he wont receive the same guff he got last time from the democrat party.
