South Carolina Senator Luke Rankin is heading to a runoff for the Republican nomination against John Gallman for District 33.
Rankin, who failed to walk away with more than 50% of the vote on the June 9 primary election, has been serving in the senate since 1993; however, his support for the gas tax and Santee Cooper has been a complaint of his opponent and some voters in his district.
Gallman, who is a conservative favorite, ended up with 35% of the votes, just 4% behind Rankin’s 39%.
Now the two will face off on June 23.
The winner of this election will win the Republican nomination and become the Republican candidate for the District 33 seat.
