SC GOP lawmaker Duncan wins open US House seat

Nov 2, 2010 8:55:00 PM - thestate.com
Republican Jeff Duncan is moving from the South Carolina Statehouse to the U.S. House.

Duncan beat Democrat Jane Dyer on Tuesday for the 3rd District seat left open when U.S. Rep. Gresham Barrett unsuccessfully ran for the GOP's nomination for governor.

Duncan is a four-term state legislator who wants to end Social Security for Americans currently being born and wants to change the Constitution so children of illegal immigrants born in the U.S. aren't automatically granted citizenship.

Dyer is a pilot for FedEx and a former Air Force captain who also ran for the seat in 2008 and lost.

The 3rd District covers 10 counties in northwestern South Carolina and includes Clemson, the nearby Oconee Nuclear Station and the Savannah River Site.
