Best One-Person Election 

Mary Tinkler vs. Bobby Harrell

Staff Pick

The 2014 race for House District 114 got unexpectedly exciting last summer when the bombshell news came out that House Speaker Bobby Harrell, one of the most influential politicians in the state, would plead guilty to ethics violations and be forced to leave office in the home stretch of the general election. Despite last-minute political jockeying and appeals to the state Supreme Court, Democrat Mary Tinkler, a young political newcomer, was left as the only main-party candidate on the ballot. Now, for the first time since 1992, someone besides Bobby Harrell represents District 114 in the House. Best of luck to S.C. Rep. Mary Tinkler.
