South Carolina Rep. Bob Inglis is headed to a primary runoff with a fellow Republican after finishing second in his bid for a fourth straight term.
Spartanburg prosecutor Trey Gowdy won the most votes in Tuesday's primary, but couldn't get a majority.
The winner of the June 22 runoff in northern South Carolina's 4th District faces Democrat Paul Corden, who had no primary opponent.
Inglis is a real estate lawyer seeking another two years in a seat he once gave up to honor a term limits pledge.
Gowdy criticized Inglis for supporting federal bailouts in a race that attracted three other challengers, all of whom argued Inglis was not conservative enough.
