COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Palmetto State Teachers Association Executive Director Kathy Maness has made the runoff for South Carolina’s open state education superintendent seat.

Maness’ runoff opponent and the Democratic nominee have not been determined.

Tuesday’s election also featured a handful of U.S. house primaries and a few statewide office incumbents who were facing challengers.

Democratic U.S. Rep. Jim Clyburn won the chance to run for a 16th term in November.

U.S. Reps. Nancy Mace, William Timmons, and Tom Rice all face opposition in their primaries.

Attorney General Alan Wilson, Secretary of State Mark Hammond, and Agriculture Commissioner Hugh Weathers all beat challengers in their Republican races.
