Five Republicans to seek open Upstate Senate seat

Filing closed yesterday for the State Senate seat vacated by Congressman Mick Mulvaney. Five Republicans are in the running for the seat:

  • Brian Carnes of Indian Land
  • Greg Gregory of Lancaster
  • Rob McCoy from Lancaster
  • Wendy Petzel from Fort Mill
  • Mike Short from Fort Mill

This race was expected by many since last fall when Fifth Congressional District race polling showed Mulvaney pulling into the lead. Surprisingly, given the amount of lead notice, the race has taken plenty of turns and twists as late-entering candidates entered and others passed on running for the seat.
