South Carolina governor:

Nikki Haley, a state lawmaker backed by Sarah Palin, topped a field of more senior officeholders in the Republican primary and now faces one of them, Rep. Gresham Barrett, for the party’s nomination. The winner will face Democrat Vincent Sheheen to succeed the state’s infamously love-sick Gov. Mark Sanford.


South Carolina Congress:

The Palmetto state also features two intriguing Republican runoffs for seats in the U.S. House of Representatives: Tim Scott, another Palin favorite, is up against Paul Thurmond, son of the late Sen. Strom Thurmond, R-S.C., in a Republican primary. A win by Scott would put him on track to become the first black Republican in the House since 2003. The Democrat in the race is Ben Frasier, who does not appear to have a website or a campaign account with the Federal Election Commission. In the other GOP House contest, Rep. Bob Inglis is fighting for his political life against challenger Trey Gowdy. This is a test of Tea Party strength: Inglis is catching flak for his 2008 vote for the $700 billion Wall Street bailout bill. Paul Corden is the Democratic candidate in a district that leans heavily Republican: Two years ago, GOP presidential nominee John McCain beat President Obama there 60%-38%.
