Smith Wins Democratic Primary For Governor

posted by Gary Barboza - 

(Columbia, SC)  --  There will no runoff in the Democratic race for governor.  

State Rep. James Smith won the Democratic primary yesterday and avoided a runoff with a majority of the vote.  Florence lawyer Marguerite Willis came in second, and Charleston tech consultant Phil Noble was third.  

The 50-year-old Smith has been a state rep for more than two decades, and if he wins in November, he'll be the state's first Democratic governor since 2002.
