Senate District 32 runoff Tuesday
Senate District 32 voters will return to polls Tuesday for the Democratic primary runoff between Williamsburg County Councilman Sam L. Floyd of Kingstree and S.C. Rep. Ronnie A. Sabb of Greeleyville.
The two are vying for the seat left vacant when Democrat Yancey McGill of Kingstree resigned his Senate seat after 20 years to temporarily fill the lieutenant governor’s post.
No Republicans or others have filed to run, so the winner will most likely take office.
Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday.
