UPDATE: Recount Halted by State Supreme Court

Shortly after a recount of Richland County votes began, a judge halted the count until next week.

A South Carolina Supreme Court judge has temporarily ruled in favor of the GOP's petition to halt a recount of all the Richland County ballots, The State reports.

This overturns a lower court's decision to recount the ballots. 

Both sides will have to submit written arguments by noon on Tuesday, The State reports. 

A formal petition by an attorney was filed protesting the outcome of the penny sales tax as well. 

Also on Friday, lawmakers spoke out about the connections between the director of elections and lobbyists for the penny tax.
