The executive committee of the Greenwood County Democratic Party took the rare step to endorse a pair of candidates in advance of Tuesday’s partisan primaries.
The county party is endorsing longtime state Sen. Brad Hutto in his U.S. Senate Democratic primary race against Jay Stamper. That senate seat currently is held by Republican Lindsey Graham.
The South Carolina Democratic Party also endorsed Hutto in the U.S. Senate primary.
Meanwhile, the Greenwood County Democrats also endorsed Fair Play’s Barbara Jo Mullis in the 3rd Congressional District primary. Mullis is facing Hosea Cleveland.
The 3rd District seat currently is held by Republican Jeff Duncan.
