South Carolina 2010 Election Results: Republican Jim DeMint wins Senate via landslide

By on Nov 4, 2010 in International, United States, World Comments

With almost all votes counted incumbent Republican candidate Jim DeMint wins the senate seat by garnering 63% of the total votes. The Republicans dominated the South Carolina Elections as Nikki Haley as Governor against Democratic candidate Vincent Sheheen. It was a close race however between Sheheen, former South Carolina State Senator, and Haley with only 4% of the votes separating the candidates.

There were also two South Carolina amendments that were approved during the elections. These measures are:

  • South Carolina Amendment 1: Right To Hunt was approved which means that the state constitution would be amended to establish a formal right to hunt and fish.
  • South Carolina Amendment 2: Secret Ballot in Union Elections. This measure would ensure that workers get a secret ballot to vote for union representation. Some people believe secret ballots would make it harder to unionize employees at a given workplace.
