DARLINGTON, S.C. (WBTW) — Darlington City Councilwoman Sheila Baccus won re-election Tuesday, according to unofficial results.
Baccus won 78.9% of the vote, according to unofficial results. Daniel Watson received 21.4% of the vote. Less than 500 people voted in the race.
Baccus made headlines last year after allegedly telling a white officer to “take your white self back to the white neighborhood” after he tried to give her a parking ticket.
She also filed a civil rights lawsuit in April against the mayor, a police officer, and others alleging “racially motivated” actions.
