MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (AP) - Two Republicans meet in a runoff next month for the House District 106 seat on the Grand Strand vacated earlier this year.

Rep. Nelson Hardwick had held the seat for a decade, before he resigned in May after an investigation into a sexual harassment complaint by a House staffer.

A four-way GOP primary was held Tuesday.

Local media outlets report attorney and former Horry County executive committeeman Russell Fry was the top vote-getter with 45 percent while real estate broker and Horry County Councilman Tyler Servant finished second with 33 percent.

Because neither got more than 50 percent, they will meet in an Aug. 11 runoff.

Whoever wins should go to Columbia because there is no Democrat running in the district that includes Surfside Beach and Garden City.
