Green Party Sue Edward: 988

Note: While he remained on the ballot, as a part of his plea agreement following charges of misuse of funds, Harrell resigned and was barred from holding elected office for three years. He would not be allowed to hold office even if he had won the election.[2][3] On October 30, 2014, the South Carolina Election Commission unanimously ruled that this election would be moved back to December and that Republicans would be allowed to nominate a new candidate. Tinkler filed a complaint with the South Carolina Supreme Court asking them to overturn the ruling.[4] The state Supreme Court issued a stay on October 31, 2014, allowing the general election to take place as planned so that the court could review the commission's decision. Under the commission's ruling, the results of the general election would be thrown out and force a November 25 primary election followed by a general election on December 9.[5]


The South Carolina Attorney General's office signed a motion in early December to recognize Tinkler as the winner, and as a result, South Carolina Republicans have dropped their challenge to Tinkler's election. The hearing scheduled for December 9, 2014, was cancelled as a result.[6]
