Outgoing incumbents

Retiring

Three incumbent senators are not seeking re-election in 2020, leaving three open seats.

Defeated

No incumbents were defeated in their primaries. Luke A. Rankin (R–Horry), who has represented District 33 since 1992, was the only incumbent whose primary was forced to go to a runoff, after he failed to obtain 50% of the vote in his primary. The runoff took place on June 23, 2020,[5] between Rankin and challenger John Gallman, and was won by Rankin.[6]
