It's Palmetto-State Primary Time!

Dear reader(s), 

We almost didn't make it. A full week has passed since the last nominating contests, forcing Stumper to resort to nutty indulgences like "spending time with friends" and "taking a shower" to deal with the effects of withdrawal. But finally the day has come; while I type, South Carolina Democrats are heading to the polls to vote for their candidates of choice. As with Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada, Michigan and the South Carolina Republican contest, we'll spend the day looking at "what's next" for the remaining contenders as they depart Gamecock Country and fan out across the continent in advance of Feb. 5's coast-to-coast Super Tuesday bonanza.

Thanks for reading,
