HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – A contentious Republican race for Horry County Treasurer saw Angie Jones come out on top during Tuesday’s primary, according to unofficial results.

Jones amassed 11,245 votes, or 55 percent of the total, to Jonathan Hyman’s 9,253, or 45 percent, according to the results.

Her victory on Tuesday came five days after Jones resigned her position as deputy treasurer and accepted a position in the Horry County Clerk of Courts Office.

At a Friday press conference, Jones said she resigned her post at the treasurer's office because of what she referred to as a, "hostile work environment."

Hyman responded Friday afternoon and said that while Jones claimed to suffer from a hostile work environment, she didn't resign until five days before the election and only after being confronted with the removal of tax penalties from a relative's tax bill.
