CCDP Newsletter: Our First 2022 Candidate Feature

9 mins read


For our first candidate feature of the cycle, we want to let everyone know about Dr. Annie Andrews, who is the Democratic nominee for the SC-1. 

Dr. Annie Andrews has been a Pediatrician at MUSC since 2009. She is a volunteer with Moms Demand Action and a frequently invited speaker at Children’s Hospitals and Medical Schools across the country. She is a member of the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Charleston County Medical Society, where she serves on the Charleston County Medical Society School Health Committee, advising the Charleston County School District on matters related to child health. She is an appointed member of the City of Charleston Mayor’s Health and Wellness Committee and a member of the Fall Lowcountry cohort of the Furman University Riley Institute’s Diversity Leaders Initiative. 

We must do everything we can to help flip the 1st District back to blue. We’ve seen it done before, and we can do it again. Please take a look at Dr. Andrews’ website through the button below and consider donating to help her win in November!


The candidate overview featured last week will be a feature of the newsletter for the months to come and has received its own section below the Upcoming Events! It will be updated as more information comes in. Next week, statewide candidate information will be added.
