South Carolina Election Results

South Carolina Election Results, COLUMBIA, SC – South Carolina elected its first woman governor Tuesday, opting for a tea party lawmaker Repubic backed to succeed scandal-stained Gov. Mark Sanford.

Nikki Haley will be the second Indian-American governor nation when replacing Sanford, whose term ends in January limited mandate. Bobby Jindal of Louisiana is also Native American.

She won with nearly 52 percent of the vote, more than 46 state Sen. Vincent Sheehan percent to 85 percent of precincts.

Haley, a married woman 38 years of age, of two, won the support of Sarah Palin and strident campaign as a political outsider seeking to derail the vested interests in the capital of your state. She was also able to assume the unproven accusations of infidelity, questions about your finances and handwringing experience and business groups and fellow Republicans worried she will continue Sanford acrimonious relationship with the state of the leaders of the Legislature Party Republicans.

Shehan, 39 years old, a Democrat of Camden, had won numerous endorsements from newspapers and praise, even reluctantly impressed by Republican operatives to a campaign that made the contest closer than expected.

Haley, whose national profile rose quickly after their victory in four main directions, it becomes an important figure in the national political scene. South Carolina is the first southern state in the presidential primary circuit and possible 2012 Republican candidates for the White House and are beating paths through the landscape, and who donated to his campaign.

However, she inherits a bristling Legislature elbows out after eight years and castigations Sanford vetoes public, both on spending. In particular, the two factions fought after Sanford admitted an affair with a woman Argentina called his soul mate. Sanford, who has since divorced, was formally reprimanded by regulators, but resisted pressure to resign.

The son of Sikh immigrants – now Methodist – Haley grew up in rural Bamberg County and helped lead the family business, clothing, work as a bookkeeper from his adolescence. Haley’s father, who has been the traditional Sikh turban, was a professor of biology at a historically black college and his mother teaches social studies middle school.

Sheehan kept the race close. Haley raised and $ 3.9 million for the campaign and past and 3.7 million, Shehan and 3,900,000 raised and spent to 3.8 million.
