Mike Burns will ask voters to go the polls one more time. The state Election Commission ruled that Greenville County must hold a special election March 12 to fill the vacant House District 17 seat.
Burns, who defeated Chris Sullivan in a Republican primary runoff, will be the only name on the ballot. No Democrat filed for District 17, in northern Greenville County.
Mike Burns beat Chris Sullivan today in the Republican primary runoff for the House District 17 seat representing northern Greenville County. Burns received 1,383 votes and Sullivan 1,134.
No Democrat filed for the seat and unless one does after today’s runoff, Burns could be sworn in without requiring a special election on March 12.
