THE YEAR OF THE INSIDER:

Haley-Endorsed Candidate Wins S.C. State Senate Primary (Natalie Johnson, June 29, 2016, Free Beacon)

Controversial state Sen. Lee Bright was ousted during the South Carolina GOP run-off Tuesday by a local attorney who had the backing of Gov. Nikki Haley. [...]

Bright also voted for the Confederate flag to remain on statehouse grounds following the racially charged massacre on a historically black church in Charleston, S.C.

Bright conceded after the election that voters likely backed Talley because of Haley's endorsement.

The Chamber hailed Talley's win Tuesday as a victory for new conservative leadership.

Pretty much the only way an incumbent could lose a race this year is to run against the Establishment.
