Consider This: Congressional Seat

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) Elections are always important, but next Tuesday is unique because South Carolina narrows the list of candidates for our newly created, 7th Congressional District.

Consider This: As you know, there is no incumbent representative so the field is wide open. And as history proves, once the position is filled the incumbent is difficult to unseat in future races. That's why there are so many people who have tossed their hat into the ring. And because this position is so important for our region WMBF is airing debates this week to let you to get to know the candidates.

You'll have the final say on who represents us in the general election in November. But narrowing the field next Tuesday is equally important. Make sure you get to the polls and cast your ballot.
