State Sen. Tom Davis, R-Beaufort, on Wednesday ended his Senate filibuster of a road-repair bill. However, state Sen. Lee Bright, R-Spartanburg, a Davis ally, took over at the Senate podium.
Senators will return Thursday with Bright continuing to speak on the road-repair bill.

Davis filibustered the proposal for four days, opposing an increase to the state’s 16.75-cent-a-gallon gas tax in favor of using one-time and anticipated state surpluses to pay for billions in road repairs.
