The special congressional election to replace Office of Management and Budget director Mick Mulvaney in his former north-central South Carolina district begins today with the partisan primaries. Voters will potentially choose nominees within their own party. Should no one receive majority support, a likely scenario for Republicans, a run-off will occur on May 16th. The two leading GOP candidates appear to be former state Representative and 2006 congressional nominee Ralph Norman and state House Speaker Pro Tempore Tommy Pope. Democrats may nominate outright former Wall Street executive Archie Parnell. The eventual Republican nominee will be a heavy favorite for the June 20th special general election.
