Kiawah, Seabrook Choose Trump

Staff Report for The Island Connection

A little over half of Kiawah’s registered voters turned out to vote for the next President of the United States, handing Donald Trump a decisive victory over Democratic candidate Hilary Clinton. A similar, those less emphatic victory, occurred in neighboring Seabrook Island, where voter turnout was higher, at 61 percent.

In Charleston County, Clinton won with 50.64 percent of the vote, to Trump’s 42.78 percent. Sen. Tim Scott won his bid for election to his senate seat, beating Democratic challenger Tom Dixon 56 percent to 41 percent. Mark Sanford was returned to U.S House of Representatives 55 percent to 37 percent. The 1/2 penny sales tax increase also narrowly passed as did the related roads bond.
