Overview
South Carolina, the scene of such great activity during the Republican presidential primary in February, saw a very quite campaign on the presidential level in the fall.  None of the principals visited.  Bush carried the Palmetto State with a comfortable plurality of 220,307 votes (15.94 percentage points).  Bush won 31 counties to 15 for Gore. >  Heath Thompson ran Republicans' Victory 2000 effort; Remle Beard was Gore-Lieberman state director.  One issue on the ballot that did generate considerable debate was Amendment 1 to lift a ban on lotteries; it passed.
