LEXINGTON COUNTY, SC (WIS) - Chris Wooten is now the Republican nominee for the South Carolina State House of Representatives District 69 seat that was left vacant by former representative Rick Quinn following a corruption investigation.
The people of Lexington County have spoken, giving Wooten a victory with 55 percent of the votes counted in Tuesday's runoff election.
Wooten is currently running unopposed for the seat, which will be decided in a general election on May 1. However, a Democratic competitor could emerge before the general election and the public has the option to write in a candidate.
House Seat 69 covers portions of Lexington and West Columbia up to portions of the Lexington side of Lake Murray.
