CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

Sandy Senn beat Roy Maybank in Tuesday night's runoff to win the District 41 seat. 

"It does appear that we have won the Senate 41 seat," Senn said Tuesday night. "It was a hard fought race. We've taken it home."

CURRENT RESULTS

2 of 2 counties reporting 

Roy Maybank - 42.31% - 1868 VOTES

Sandy Senn - 57.69% - 2547 VOTES

In Senn’s victory speech at Andolini’s Pizza in West Ashley, she thanked her supporters and spoke about the journey to her presumed victory.

“This race started out with five candidates, then two,” Senn said. “Now, we’ve taken it home.”

Senn was thankful to her supporters saying she hoped others will get behind her because she says she’s on fire to get things done.

“We need to get police officers better insured, which I know how to do that,” Senn said. “We need to work on possibly a local option gas tax versus this universal gas tax everybody has been talking about so that the money stays locally. And, I definitely want to have more vocational education, not just sending every child to college. We need to have them get the great moves at Boeing, Volvo some of our great industries.”

Senn is the presumptive winner because there’s not a democratic candidate running in November.

Senn got 40 percent of the votes two weeks ago, Maybank got 23 percent. 

The winner will represent James island, West Ashley, Johns Island and parts of North Charleston. 

It's a seat being vacated by Sen. Paul Thurmond.
