2 Incumbent SC Congressmen Face Primary Challenges

By BRUCE SMITH, ASSOCIATED PRESS CHARLESTON, S.C. Jun 10, 2016, 3:17 PM ET

Three congressional seats are up for grabs next week in South Carolina, including one held by an incumbent GOP congressman who as governor came under fire for lying about his whereabouts when he was out of the country with a woman who wasn't his wife.

Republican U.S. Rep. Mark Sanford is one of two congressional incumbents to face challengers in the primary. The other is Mick Mulvaney. On the Democratic side, two candidates will face off for the right to take on GOP incumbent Joe Wilson in November.

Sanford faces state Rep. Jenny Horne of Summerville in the Lowcountry's 1st District, the race that has attracted the most attention. In the 5th District along the North Carolina border, Mulvaney, first elected six years ago, faces Ray Craig of Lake Wylie.

Sanford has a decided edge over Horne in terms of money on hand for the final push in the race between the two candidates.
