redrawn first district. On Tuesday, Elizabeth said, “We can do this.
Charleston County went for Obama in November!” In other words, the first
district is progressive and Democratic. The main goal is to get our Democratic

Republicans most likely), April 2nd

The special election, to elect our new first
congressional district representative will be May 7th. The election
