Berkeley County supervisor race separated by two votes

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - The race for Berkeley County supervisor was so close that they'll do it again.

A neck and neck race all night long was separated by only two votes for the Republican nomination.

Incumbent Dan Davis and retired Congressman Henry Brown will have a runoff June 22.

"It's pretty important to me that we win," Brown said Tuesday. "I've been away from home for 26 years; 16 in Columbia, 10 in Washington. I've missed the interaction with the people you really hear a lot about. Those people who you grew up with, and watched their kids grow up. But we'll wait and see. We don't want to get too over confident."

With only two Republicans on the ticket, the winner of the runoff will run uncontested in November.

"I just want to get back to work," Davis said. "This campaign has lasted a good, long while. It's taken a lot of time away from the office; I'm just excited to get back to work and not have to worry about running a campaign."
