Incumbent Lee Bright and Scott Talley will have a runoff on June 28 for State Senate District 12.

A runoff is held when no candidate earns more than 50 percent of the vote.

Bright received 38 percent (3,681 votes), Talley 27 percent (2,594), Greer businessman David McCraw 23 percent (2,241) and Lisa C. Scott 13 percent (1,250) Tuesday night in the Republlcan primary.

“We took the majority of the votes compared to the other challengers,” Bright said. “I’m hoping to have another good election here in two weeks.”

“When you’ve got a four-person race our goal from day one was getting the runoff,” Talley said. “Now we get the chance to run for two more weeks.”

Spartanburg County election officials said less than 10 percent of registered voters came out to the polls.
