South Carolina's 1st Congressional District for Grabs


By Rochelle Dean


Tuesday voters will headed to the polls to cast their ballot in the Primaries in the district along the south Coast of the State.

A total of 16 Republicans are on the ballot. Among them, Former Governor Mark Sandford and Teddy Turner.

This is Sandford's first run for office since he admitted having an affair while in office back in 2009 - a scandal that derailed his political career.

The seat up fro grabs was left vacant after Tim Scott took over the US senate seat left vacant by Jim Demint who resigned from the position.

Elizabeth Colbert and Ben Frasier are running on the Democratic ticket in the same race.
