Candidate for SC education superintendent withdraws

Local News

Israel Romero, the Democratic candidate for South Carolina superintendent of education, has withdrawn from the race.

Romero informed the chairman of the state Democratic party of his decision with a letter on Wednesday, saying he was withdrawing his candidacy “due to illness.”

The announcement came less than three weeks before the November 6 election.   Thousands of voters have already cast absentee ballots.

Romero was running against incumbent Molly Spearman, who is seeking another term in office.

No other candidates are on the ballot.
