COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — COVID-19 dominated South Carolina news in 2020. There was news before the pandemic started. President-elect Joe Biden won the Democratic presidential primary before the first case was detected in South Carolina.
Across the state, people mourned a 6-year-old girl found dead in Cayce after disappearing as she played outside.

More than $100 million was spent on the U.S. Senate race won by Lindsey Graham and COVID-19 changed the way we voted.
