In SC there is a lot of hype in the First District Race ,a Coastal District which includes much of Charleston and down to Hilton Head.
The reason is the perceived weakness of Republican Katie Arrington who defeated incumbent and former Governor Mark Sanford.
A Trump cultist,Arrington has been plagued by an obvious lack of knowledge on many issues and a general perception that she simply isn’t very bright,Certainly in comparison to Democratic attorney Joe Cunningham.
Still,the District,in its present configuration, has never elected a Democrat, so Cunningham remains a decided underdog.Democrats run well In Charleston though and many Republicans tend to be more moderate than in the state as a whole and some are not enchanted by Katie and her almost shrill fawning over Trump.
All this has some calling for a possible upset.I don’t see it myself .Cunningham is the far superior candidate and is running a good campaign but the District is drawn to elect a Republican (minority areas in and around Charleston are in Clyburns Sixth District) .
Cunningham will likely make it a lot closer than usual but Arrington will likely prevail….
