Both of South Carolina's U.S. Senate seats were in contest this year for the Republican and Democratic parties. Incumbent Sen. Lindsey Graham, a Republican, defeated six challengers -- Det Bowers, Lee Bright, Richard Cash, Bill Connor, Benjamin Dunn and Nancy Mace -- and avoided a runoff in the race for the GOP ballot spot. Brad Hutto defeated Jay Stamper for the Democratic nomination.
Sen. Tim Scott, a Republican, kept his name on the GOP ballot for the seat he has held since Gov. Nikki Haley chose him to replace former Sen. Jim DeMint. He will face off against Democrat Joyce Dickerson in November.
