The winners of the July 8th SC vote are …
- Sen. Bernie Sanders (17 votes, 77%)
- Fmr. Gov. Mitt Romney (14 votes, 64%)
- Gov. John Kasich (11 votes, 50%)
- Gov. Nikki Haley (10 votes, 45%)
- Gov. Mike Pence (10 votes, 45%)
on the second round, from an initial field of 20 candidates.
Voter turnout was 24-22 (first-second rounds).
These candidates will be added to the official 2016 campaign.
While the victories of the 3 sitting Republican Governors are not such a big surprise, I think the strength of Sen. Sanders in particular is an interesting result.

Now for the 8th SC vote of 2014.
This vote will be for adding 5 new endorsers to the official 2016 campaign.
If you want to participate in the vote, you must be a member of the SC (Steering Council).
