SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) — A city councilwoman has won the Democratic nomination for a vacant seat in the South Carolina House.
Unofficial returns show that Spartanburg City Councilwoman Rosalyn Henderson Myers won a primary runoff Tuesday, getting 58 percent of the vote.
She defeated attorney Mo Abusaft, who had nearly 52 percent of the vote.
Myers will face Republican Mike Fowler in a Sept. 26 special election to fill the vacancy created by the resignation of Democratic Rep. Harold Mitchell in May.
Myers is also an attorney and has been a member of city council since 2015.
