GOP First Congressional Runoff

Tuesday is the GOP runoff between two men trying for the first district congressional seat in South Carolina.  Curtis Bostic of Charleston and former South Carolina Mark Sanford are the two names on the ballot after getting the most votes in the primary two weeks ago.  But since neither got more than 50% -- the runoff was necessary. 

 

We stopped by Sun City's Pinkney Hall early Tuesday afternoon, where they say they predict the good weather will have the big crowds coming in after they get off the golf course, softball fields, and pickle ball courts!

"The turnout has been about 10% versus the 20% we had in March and we've still got half the day to go.  Pretty good for a runoff election," clerk Joe Fragale said.

 

The winner of Tuesday's runoff will face Elizabeth Colbert-Busch in the May 7th special election.  Colbert-Busch is the sister of actor comedian Stephen Colbert of comedy central's "The Colbert Report."

    Rough Weather Causes Tree To Collapse onto House

    Our spate of nasty spring weather this weekend didn't just bring rain into the picture. In some parts of our immediate area wind was also a major part of the weather scene. A good example of this is the house in Liberty County that was walloped by a tree. Apparently the house, located in the 4700 block of East Ogelthrope Highway was damaged when a massive tree fell on it. Neighbors believe heavy winds caused the tree to topple onto the building. The good news here is no one was injured. But t...
