Candidate filing closed on Monday for the special election in this State House district in Horry County in northeastern South Carolina. The seat is vacant after 5-term Republican Nelson Hardwick resigned amid sexual harassment allegations made earlier this year.
The primary election will take place on July 28th. The seat is reliably Republican, which explains why only 4 GOP candidates filed:
Russell Fry – attorney and County party committee member
Sanford Cox Graves – former prosecutor, judge & county attorney
Tyler Servant – Horry County Councilman
Roy Sprinkle – podiatric surgeon
