"The Palmetto State basks in the political limelight every four years with the first-in-the-South presidential primary. But a rare sequence of events is drawing some big names to an off-season congressional race in South Carolina's Low Country. A primary is scheduled for March 19 to fill the U.S. House seat of now-Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C. In December, Gov. Nikki Haley appointed Scott to succeed former Republican Sen. Jim DeMint, who resigned to become president of the conservative Heritage Foundation. With no incumbent, ... [t]he candidates have poured in; two Democrats and 16 Republicans are running."
