Republican Sen. Tim Scott was appointed to the seat he now holds by South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley when the incumbent, Jim DeMint, left to head the Heritage Foundation. In his first statewide race, Scott, who previously served in the U.S. House of Representatives, will face off in the June 10 primary against what the locals are calling a phantom Republican. After filing his papers in March, Randall Young seems to have disappeared from sight. Democrats will likely need a miracle to beat Scott in November in this very Republican red state.
