Democrats have nominated a former senior adviser at Goldman Sachs to fill the open House seat vacated by Mick Mulvaney, who now is Office of Management and Budget director for President Donald Trump.
Two Republicans will head to a runoff following Tuesday's primaries in South Carolina's special election.
Democrat Archie Parnell was the projected winner, according to The Hill. He defeated Army veteran Alexis Frank and Marine veteran Les Murphy.
Seven Republicans duked it out , but with 82 percent of the vote counted late Tuesday, none had a majority. Former state Rep. Ralph Norman and state House Speaker Pro Tempore Tommy Pope, each with just below a third of the vote total, were expected to face each other in the runoff later this month.
Republicans are expected to hold the seat, The Hill reported.
