SC Republican voters tap councilman Ard for lt gov

Jun 22, 2010 8:57:00 PM - thestate.com
Florence County councilman Ken Ard has won the Republican nomination for lieutenant governor in South Carolina.

Ard defeated Orangeburg lawyer and military veteran Bill Connor in Tuesday's GOP runoff and will face Democratic Charleston lawyer Ashley Cooper in November.

Ard also won the four-way GOP race two weeks ago.

The lieutenant governor succeeds the governor should the top officeholder die or leave office. Official duties include presiding over the Senate and overseeing the state Office on Aging.

Two-term Lt. Gov. Andre Bauer stepped down in an unsuccessful run for governor.
