Fry’s big win came in June when he defeated incumbent Rep. Tom Rice to secure the Republican nomination for the 7th Congressional District.

He emerged as one of the top challengers to Rice after he received an endorsement from former President Donald Trump.

He has served in the South Carolina Legislature since late 2015 when he won a special election.

The results of the election will be certified on Friday.
