• SC superintendent primaries lead to runoffs in both parties


    COLUMBIA, S.C. - A dozen people ran to become South Carolina's state superintendent.
    The Democrats will be headed to a runoff between Sheila Gallagher and Tom Thompson.


    The Republican race will also go into a runoff between Molly Spearman and Sally Atwater.
    Several of the candidates have gained attention by taking unusual platforms.
    The job pays $92,000 a year and whoever is elected will oversee the Department of Education.
    The Chesterfield County sheriff election will head to a runoff between Jay Brooks and James Dixon.
    The sheriff's office has faced some controversy. A judge found former Sheriff Sam Parker guilty of misconduct earlier this year.
    Prosecutors said he furnished contraband to inmates and embezzled money.
    Parker was sentenced to two years in prison.
