South Carolina Math At Work In State Senate Race?

MOMENTUM? OR “MARCOMENTUM?”

One of the candidates for an Upstate South Carolina Senate seat is touting the success of a recent introductory mail piece his campaign sent out this week.  William Timmons – who is running against incumbent S.C. Senator Mike Fair – took to his Facebook page to boast of the impact of his mailer, pictured below.

“I introduced myself to almost 24,000 potential voters today,” Timmons said. “I have received 26 calls this afternoon from people encouraging me, telling me that I have their vote, and telling me that they will tell as many people as possible to vote for me. I want to thank them for their support and I am excited about the next 97 days! Momentum is building.”

Um … really?

That’s roughly 0.1 percent of “potential voters” who responded to this guy’s mailing.  Not one percent, mind you.  Zero point one percent.

Momentum?  No … not unless you learned your math in a government-run school in South Carolina.

Perhaps it’s “Marcomentum,” something Timmons knows a lot about given his aggressive advocacy in the Palmetto State on behalf of liberal U.S. Senator Marco Rubio of Florida.

Speaking of “South Carolina math,” only around 6,000 people voted in the last “Republican” primary for this seat. Meaning Timmons has done some seriously expensive overkill.

“Timmons sent mailers to registered democrats, independents, and the best list I could find at least 1,500 people who moved or died,” one source familiar with the mailing told us.

That’s some serious cheddar …

Timmons has raised roughly $131,000 for his bid – although the vast majority of that came in the form of a $100,000 loan he received from the United Community Bank last November.

Fits needs to work on his math. Only 1743 people voted in Mike Fair’s South Carolina State Senate District 6 Republican Primary, 2012.
26÷1,743×100%= 1.49%
Not bad for one afternoon.

South Carolina

HARASSMENT AND STALKING

SECTION 16-3-1700.

Flip March 10, 2016 at 10:51 am

I’m not harassing you. You are replying to me and I’m replying to you. You sure are stupid if you think that is harassment. Maybe you should get a smarter lawyer.

Flip March 10, 2016 at 11:14 am

Looks like @ladybeater was making legal threats but either deleted his account or got banned. Disgusting bully making accusations about me. I am allowed to defend myself from your false allegations.

Flip March 10, 2016 at 9:24 am

Wow, your profile has “@ladybeater” on it. You do need Jesus. SMH

J.Smith and Jesus for Trump March 10, 2016 at 9:52 am

Of course.We will ‘beat’ the ‘lady’ named Hillary.Be informed I’m gonna sue your ass for damages and file a criminal complaint for Stalking and Harassment if you continue your behavior.

Great!!!!…..might I suggest D. Fanin, Esq., Counsel for butthurt trolls everywhere and personal lawyer for my pathetic, pedophile dad.

Documented.

More like “demented”

Flip March 10, 2016 at 10:50 am

LMAO!!! Nice!

Flip March 10, 2016 at 10:50 am

That doesn’t sound like beating Hillary at the polls, it sounds more like you advocate domestic violence against women when you go by @ladybeater… Why not @defeatclinton if you are wanting her to lose?

J.Smith and Jesus for Trump March 10, 2016 at 11:00 am

You were asked to cease and desist from all communication with me.For 7 weeks this ‘persona’ and others we believe you created, have been making threats and libelous comments about me and my family that has damaged me and my family.My personal/professional social media accounts were hacked.

It is now BOTH a civil and criminal matter.

very truly yours,

J.Smith

I “clicked to enlarge” the brochure but it didn’t work. I went to his Fecebook page, hoping to be able to read it, but still no luck.

How does Mr Timmons stand on gun rights?

He’s got to be an improvement over Mike Fair, just because he’s not Mike Fair.

Most people will never make a call from a flyer. 26 calls is a lot.

I hope he beats Fair. Fair has become a RINO that votes correctly on abortion so the right loves him.

SC needs Senators that will make a difference, not do as they are told.

Senators Bright, Verdin and Peeler had the guts to honor patriots and Southern heritage by voting to KEEP the flag

And there are 20 House members with steadfast loyalty whom Tea WILL support and about whom we can brag

Those patriot House members are Bedingfield, Burns, Chumley, Corley, Delleney, Hardee, Hill, Johnson and Kennedy

Then Loftis—Moss (both D.C. and V.S.), Nanney, Putnam, Simrill, Spires, Stringer, Taylor, Thaylor—and let’s see

White makes twenty and that is plenty of reason to get out and vote this year and beyond that let us just say

Legislators’ names YOU DON’T SEE HERE—let us make it crystalclear—need to be UNELECTED on election day !!!

Interesting this doesn’t mention anything about the third candidate for this Senate seat. Met Johnny Edwards the other day and he seems like a good guy and a smart business man.
