From the Associated Press:

 COLUMBIA, SC - Sheila Gallagher has advanced to a runoff in the Democratic primary for South Carolina's superintendent of education.
   
Gallagher unofficially received 36 percent of the vote Tuesday night making her the biggest vote getter in the primary.  She will most likely face either Tom Thompson or Rep. Jerry Govan in the June 24 runoff.
   
The 60-year-old Gallagher is the former president of the South Carolina Education Association.
   
Gallagher endorses the idea of allowing South Carolinians to vote on legalizing marijuana and using taxes raised from its sales to fund public education.
