Voters pick GOP House candidate in Greenville


GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) — Voters in Greenville County are picking a Republican candidate for a South Carolina House seat.

Voters on Tuesday are picking a replacement for Travelers Rest Rep. Tom Corbin, who was also elected to the state Senate in November. Corbin entered the Senate race after Greer Sen. Phillip Shoopman withdrew after the filing period closed.

There is no Democratic candidate so the winner of the GOP primary will likely be the new lawmaker unless someone runs a successful write-in candidate in the March 12 election.

The Republican candidates are Mike Burns, Tom Kolarik, Chris Sullivan and Randall Young of Travelers Rest and Roy Harmon of Greenville.

If no one gets a majority in Tuesday's voting, a runoff will be held Feb. 5.
