GOP Claims Victory in South Carolina Special Election

Republican Ralph Norman won the special election in South Carolina's 5th District to replace Mick Mulvaney.

Norman, a Rock Hill real estate developer and former state lawmaker, crossed the finish line in Tuesday's 5th Congressional District race with about 3,000 more votes than Democrat Archie Parnell.

The Fifth District in SC resides in the north-central part of the state above Columbia and east of Greenville. Mulvaney later resigned from Congress when he was named Trump's budget director.

Why - and how - did Democrats outperform expectations in SC, where all statewide officers are Republicans, and six of the seven U.S. House seats are, too? Stumbles by President Donald Trump and a surge in opposition to him among Democratic voters has made formerly deep-red districts suddenly competitive.

The closer Norman comes to beating Parnell by 19 points (or more) - the default partisan lean of the district - the better for the Republican Party.

Republicans were not expected to have a problem holding the seat. "Each of the parties is going to claim this is a measure of the Trump presidency".

A group of dancers swayed to a medley of Tubelight tracks onstage followed by smashing performances by Nakash Aziz and Javed Ali. He then turned to Salman and said, "now you say somethingabout me."Salman replied, "What should I say about Matin".

The results in the 11-county district maintains the state Republican Party's dominance in recent congressional elections, and dashes any Democratic hopes of flipping one of South Carolina's seven congressional seats before the 2018 mid-term elections. Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC), who has close ties to House leadership, threw his support behind Norman's primary opponent, establishment Republican Tommy Pope. The U.S. House recently passed its own bill, the American Health Care Act, by a narrow margin.

"It's that fighting spirit, that perseverance and tenacity that I will take to Washington", she said Tuesday night.

Ossoff, taking the stage at his own party after conceding the race, told his supporters his campaign "is the beginning of something much bigger than us", adding, "The fight goes on".

The race for the vacated seat had been hotly contested throughout the more than four months of campaigning, especially within the Republican Party.

There are also several third party candidates in the District 5 Congressional race.

"I think it is the media hyping it up". Now is the time to enforce the 10th Amendment, to give state's rights back.
