The Democratic candidate for state superintendent, Israel Romero, may not be eligible for the position due to a 2008 felony conviction. Romero was convicted for the unauthorized practice of law, and due to a 1996 state constitutional amendment, wouldn't be eligible to run for office until 2023. Romero is challenging Republican incumbent Molly Spearman for state superintendent. The position manages a multi-billion-dollar budget and the school systems for S.C.'s 750,000 pre-k through 12th grade students. Source: Greenville News
