South Carolina Democrats join national effort challenging Electoral College

The suit, filed Thursday in U.S. District Court in Charleston, references Hillary Clinton’s 2016 South Carolina results and the fact that in the final count, her showing here meant little.


“Republican Donald Trump received 54.94 percent of the vote in South Carolina, yet he received every single electoral vote from South Carolina,” the suit says.
