GOP's Duncan defeats Doyle in SC's 3rd District

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBIA, SC (AP) -

Freshman South Carolina congressman Jeff Duncan has easily won a second term in the 3rd District in the northwestern corner of the state.

With about half of the district's precincts reporting, Duncan has rolled up about 69 percent of the vote in his contest against Democrat Brian "Ryan B" Doyle, a radio talk show host.

Duncan has said he's been proud to be among House freshmen who helped the nation move back toward more conservative policies. In a new term, Duncan says he wants to continue to push against deficit spending.

Doyle was making his second bid for the seat after losing the Democratic primary two years ago. He says he was forthcoming to voters about a 2003 felony conviction for Medicare fraud that resulted in a prison term.
