It's a Crowded Field in SC District 1

scdistrictsThere are 19 candidates (16 Republicans, 3 Democrats, and 2 Green Party candidates) who are running in the state's 1st Congressional District's open seat. Needless to say it's getting a little confusing out there.

Hopefully, this will help you out a little.
