Less than 24 hours ago, Republican SC Senator Lindsey Graham found himself in the spotlight after announcing he'd voted for independent conservative candidate Evan McMullin, but now, after president-elect Donald Trump's big win, Graham finds himself singing a different tune.

After hours of counting and calculating, Donald J.Trump was elected the 45th president of the United States.

Governor Nikki Haley also extended her congratulations to president-elect Donald Trump Wednesday morning, with a statement:

We congratulate President-elect Donald Trump on his historic victory. After a hard-fought campaign, where we have seen great passion and frustration among voters, the people have spoken. This is an opportunity for the country to unite and work together, and, as governor of South Carolina, I will partner with our new president to move our state and nation forward.

South Carolina Senator Tim Scott offered best wishes to the president-elect in the following statement:

I want to thank the amazing people of South Carolina for giving me the opportunity to continue representing them in the U.S. Senate. I am excited to work with President-elect Trump, Vice President-elect Pence, our Senate majority, and Speaker Ryan to lead our nation forward. Through the Senate Opportunity Coalition and my Opportunity Agenda, I will continue working to develop solutions to lift families up and ensure every family, in every community, in every zip code across this nation, has the opportunity to realize the American Dream. Our brightest days are ahead of us, and I'm confident we'll reach them.

-Senator Tim Scott
