Luke Rankin to face John Gallman in June 23rd runoff




June 9th is a day Luke Rankin is unlikely to forget. Rankin busted a tail light backing into a tree, leaving a polling location.

The day turned out to be a bust all around for Rankin. Rankin barely cracked 40% of the overall vote.

As Horry County residents headed to the polls, the Lexington Herald published the following:

SC Electric and Gas ratepayers and investors have long wondered if they would get justice.

Now they know that against at least one SCE&G executive they may.

SCE&G Chief Operating Officer Steve Byrne, the executie directly responsible for overseeing a failed $9 billion nuclear reactor project, has reached an agreement with prosecutors.

Prosecutors said more charges are due in a 3-year federal investigation.

Byrne specifically is pleading guilty to criminal conspiracy, wire and mail fraud.

Byrne and 2 forrmer CEOs, Kevin Marsh and Jimmy Addison, are accused of hiding evidence of the failing project as customers’ electric rates soared and investors’ share value plunged.

Rankin Campaign Manager Indicted in 2019

Rankin’s life-long campaign manager, Richard Quinn, was also indicted in 2019. Rankin continued campaign consulting with a firm headed by Quinn’s daughter Rebecca Mustian. Mustian’s sister also manages the firm.


Luke Rankin will face conservative favorite John Gallman in a runoff on June 23rd. Gallman garnered the highest-rated NRA grade for all candidates running in Horry County this election cycle.
