Norman, a former state lawmaker who challenged Spratt for the 5th District seat in 2006 and aligns himself with Trump, said during a recent candidate forum that the November presidential election results would work in his favor in his own race.

There is a special election underway in the fifth congressional district in SC, where voters are picking a member of the House to fill the seat left vacant when Donald Trump picked Mick Mulvaney to be the new Budget Director.

Here are the results for the South Carolina District 5 race and the Georgia District 6 race.

Republican Ralph Norman has won a special election to fill the SC congressional seat vacated by Mick Mulvaney, who resigned to work for President Donald Trump's administration.

Do not expect Parnell's fellow Democrats to know that.

The millionaire real estate developer won Tuesday's special election over Democrat Archie Parnell in the 5th District, which stretches north from Columbia toward the suburbs of Charlotte, North Carolina. The district leans heavily Republican but Democrats are hoping to muster anti-Trump sentiments like they have in a special congressional election in Georgia that's also taking place Tuesday.

The race for the SC seat once held by Mick Mulvaney, President Trump's budget director, seemed out of grasp for Democrats.

David L. O'Neal, a retired Army officer and paratrooper from Tega Cay, backed Norman in the primary and said the Republican earned his general election vote in part because of his stance on veterans' issues.
