U.S. Rep. Gresham Barrett, R-Westminster, said today he has no plans to concede the GOP gubernatorial runoff to state Rep. Nikki Haley of Lexington.
Haley won 49 percent of the vote in Tuesday’s Republican primary, just falling short of the 50 percent-plus-one-vote total that she needed to win the GOP nomination outright.
Barrett said he would spend the next two weeks trying to close the 110,000-vote gap between his vote total Tuesday and Haley’s.
"The most insignificant score is the score at halftime,” Barrett said.
