Kosciusko native wins primary runoff in South Carolina Congressional race


A Kosciusko native has won the Republican nomination in a South Carolina congressional race.

Sheri Biggs defeated Mark Burns Tuesday in the Republican primary runoff for South Carolina’s 3rd Congressional District.

Biggs graduated from Kosciusko High School in 1988.  She’s a nurse practitioner and a lieutenant colonel in the Air National Guard.

This was Biggs’ first run for political office and if she wins in November, she will be only the second Republican woman South Carolina has sent to Congress. U.S. Rep. Nancy Mace is still serving for the 1st District.

Biggs will face the Democratic nominee, Byron Best from Greenwood, and Michael Bedenbaugh, of the Alliance Party, in the Nov. 5 general election.
