COLUMBIA, SC - Richland County Council member Joyce Dickerson has won South Carolina's Democratic primary to face U.S. Sen. Tim Scott.
    
Early returns showed the 68-year-old Dickerson winning Tuesday's primary with 67 percent of the vote over former York County Council member Sidney Moore and Myrtle Beach attorney Harry Pavilack.
    
Dickerson and Scott will face American Party candidate Jill Bossi in November. If Scott or Dickerson wins, either would be the first black candidate elected statewide here since Reconstruction.
    
Appointed by Gov. Nikki Haley after Jim DeMint resigned from the Senate last year, Scott had yet to face a statewide election. He previously served in the U.S. House and gained instant attention as one of only two black U.S. senators and the only black Republican in that chamber.
