The South Carolina lieutenant gubernatorial election will take place on November 4, 2014 following a primary election on June 10, 2014. Incumbent Glenn McConnell (R) was first appointed in 2012 and is not running for re-election.

South Carolina has an open primary system, in which registered voters do not have to be members of a party to vote in that party's primary. In the primary runoffs, however, voters must vote in the same party whose primary they voted in.


Note: The following list of candidates is not official and will continue to be updated until the 2014 candidate filing deadline. Candidates will be added as we come across them prior to the deadline. If you see a name of a candidate who is missing, please email us and we will add that name. As the election draws closer, more information will be added to this page.


Race background

The incumbent lieutenant governor Glenn McConnell has been hired by the College of Charleston as president and will be leaving the office in June 2014.[10] The current Senate President Pro Tempore John Courson would normally be next in line but has so far expressed a desire to stay in the Senate. As such, the office may remain vacant until the winner of the November election takes office in January 2015.
