In the Democratic 7th Congressional District primary, if Mr. Vick had received 50 percent plus one votes would Mr. Harpootlian, S.C. Democratic Party chairman, have said those votes don’t count and demanded a runoff? If so, how would you still exclude Mr. Vick’s supporters?
No, I did vote on this side, but approximately 2300 people did and feel Mr. Vick should be forgiven and given the chance to run for the new congressional seat. Mr. Harpootlian, a vote is a vote in this country and not one of them should be excluded at a party chairman’s discretion.
