S.C. legislators elected John Few of Greenville, chief judge of the state Court of Appeals, to the South Carolina Supreme Court on Wednesday by a vote of 92-73.

Lawmakers chose Few over Appeals Court Judge H. Bruce Williams. A third candidate for the position, Ralph King Anderson, chief judge of the State Administrative Law Court, withdrew from the race before the vote.

The Legislature will again vote for a new justice on the Supreme Court next year after Chief Justice Costa Pleicones retires at the end of 2016.
