Tim Scott outshines Lindsey Graham

Scott has already made note of Tim Scott’s big victory in South Carolina. That state held two Senate races last night. In the other, Sen. Lindsey Graham won a very comfortable victory.

Scott outperformed Graham, though. He captured around 61 percent of the vote and had a victory margin of about 24 points. Graham received around 54.5 percent of the vote and his margin was in the neighborhood of 16 points, according to the last returns I saw.

Of course, Scott and Graham faced different opponents. Perhaps Graham’s was the more formidable of the two.

But it looks to me like Tim Scott is more popular in South Carolina than Lindsey Graham. If not, he should be.
