7th district races highlight SC’s primary runoffs

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (AP) — The voting in South Carolina’s primary season is over.

Polls closed at 7 p.m. Tuesday, and eyes began looking for returns. The big races were in the state’s new 7th congressional district, where two runoffs were taking place.

Republicans were choosing between former Lt. Gov. Andre Bauer and Horry County Council Chairman Tom Rice.

On the Democratic side, Coastal Carolina University professor Gloria Bromell Tinubu was trying to secure the nomination again. The state Election Commission declared Bromell Tinubu the primary winner, but a judge ruled Friday the commission counted the votes incorrectly and put her in a runoff with lawyer Preston Brittain.

Three legislative races also had runoffs.
