Kimpson wins Senate 42 seat

  • Friday, October 4, 2013

Democrat Marlon Kimpson won the state Senate District 42 seat in the Oct. 1 election.

Kimpson had 79.6 percent of the votes; Republican Billy Shuman had 19 percent, and Libertarian Alex Thornton had 1.2 percent, according to unofficial results from the State Election Commission.

The special election was held to fill the seat of former Sen. Robert Ford, who stepped down from his position in May after being accused of violating campaign finance laws.

Most of District 42 is in Charleston County, however a small segment of Dorchester County known as the Patriot Precinct is included in the district.
