SC General Assembly nominees to be decided Tuesday

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) – A handful of nominees for seats in the state General Assembly will be selected as voters go back to the polls across South Carolina.

There are no statewide races to be decided in Tuesday’s voting. There are runoffs in only six state Senate and seven state House primaries.

Three incumbent senators face opponents in the runoff.

Republican Senate Judiciary Chairman Larry Martin of Pickens faces former state Rep. Rex Rice.

GOP Sen. Lee Bright of Roebuck meets former state Rep. Scott Talley in Tuesday’s runoff. They were the top two vote-getters in a four-way primary two weeks ago.

Republican Mike Fair of Greenville also finds himself in a runoff against challenger William Timmons. Timmons got just less than 50 percent of the vote in the primary.
