The special primary elections for Democratic and Republican candidates seeking the vacant seat in South Carolina House District 14 are set for Tuesday. Polling places within the District are set to open at 7 a.m. and close at 7 p.m.
Four Republicans – Grant Blair, Scott Horne, Stewart Jones and Michael Seymour – make up the GOP field, while Bobby Gregory, Sr. and Garrett McDaniel face off for the Democratic nomination.
The special election for District 14 is scheduled for April 23.
Candidates are vying to fill the term of former Rep. Mike Pitts (R-Laurens), who announced his retirement in December, just a few weeks after being elected to a ninth term in the legislature. Pitts suffered a heart attack in late October and cited health concerns when announcing his retirement.
