A new South Carolina PPP poll shows Comedy Central’s Stephen Colbert in the lead to replace GOP Sen. Jim DeMint, who is moving his Tea Parties to the Heritage Foundation.
Colbert has 20%, GOP Congressman Tim Scott has 15%, GOP Congressman Trey Gowdy has 14%, and former first lady — and spurned spouse of former Gov. Mark Sanford — Jenny Sanford has 11%.
Gov. Nikki Haley will choose someone to fill the seat until the 2014 election.
