The 2016 United States Senate election in South Carolina was held November 8, 2016, to elect a member of the United States Senate to represent the State of South Carolina, concurrently with the 2016 U.S. presidential election, as well as other elections to the United States Senate in other states and elections to the United States House of Representatives and various state and local elections. Both major parties held their primaries on June 14.

Incumbent Republican Senator Tim Scott won re-election to a first full term in office.[2]

This election was only the third in U.S. history in which both major party nominees in a Senate election were African-American, as well as the second such election in South Carolina history.

  • ✪ All About Rand Paul - US Presidential Election 2016 Republican Candidate


Welcome to the Investors Trading Academy event of the week. Each week our staff of educators tries to introduce you to a person of interest in the financial world. This could be a person in government or banking or an important investors or trader. Over the next coming months ITA will take a look into each US Presidential candidate. In this video we are going to take a look at Rand Paul United States Senator and presidential hopeful. Senator Rand Paul, M.D. is one of the nation’s leading advocates for liberty. Elected to the U.S. Senate in 2010, Dr. Paul has proven to be an outspoken champion for constitutional liberties and fiscal responsibility. As a fierce advocate against government overreach, Rand has fought tirelessly to return government to its limited, constitutional scope. A devoted husband and father, Dr. Paul and his family live in Bowling Green, Ky., where Rand owned his own ofthalmology practice and performed eye surgery for 18 years. As a hard-working and dedicated physician - not a career politician - Rand Paul came to Washington to shake things up and to make a difference. Mr. Paul will try to put together a disparate coalition of voters: the libertarian faithful who supported his father, former Representative Ron Paul, in 2008 and 2012; Tea Party adherents drawn to his small-government fiscal conservatism; and some who are not even Republicans, like college students and blacks, groups he has been wooing for a year and a half. The question is whether the parts add up to a whole. Many of his father’s supporters believe that Mr. Paul has sold them out by trying too hard to appeal to mainstream Republicans. Tea Party conservatives could be peeled away by Senator Ted Cruz of Texas or Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin. And getting people who have never voted Republican to do so is no small task, especially when many caucuses and primaries are open only to registered Republicans. Mr. Paul’s viability will be judged on whether he can win one of the first four states with nominating contests: Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada or South Carolina. He has a strong campaign operation in Iowa. But with such a crowded field there, he may do better in New Hampshire, a libertarian-leaning state where his father placed second in 2012 and the unaffiliated voters he is courting are free to cast primary ballots.



Two-term Republican Senator Jim DeMint was re-elected with 61.48% of the vote in 2010. He resigned at the start of 2013 to become President of The Heritage Foundation and U.S. Representative Tim Scott of South Carolina's 1st congressional district was appointed to replace him by Governor Nikki Haley.[3] Scott subsequently won the special election in 2014 for the remaining two years of the term.
