Senate District 42 Special Election
Now that Senator Kimpson has officially resigned from the South Carolina Senate, Democrats need to work to fill the North Charleston seat with another strong advocate for the Lowcountry. The Democratic Primary has been set for September 5, and the General Election for the seat will coincide with municipal elections on November 7.
Democrats are fortunate to have three strong candidates already declared for this seat and competing in the September 5 Primary Election:
The voters within Senate District 42 are critical to generating countywide and statewide Democratic wins in the 2024 election, and Charleston Democrats must invest time and energy this summer in this strongly Democratic district. CCDP needs volunteers from across Charleston County to help call voters, knock on doors, and register new voters in advance of the September 5 Primary Election and November 7 General Election.
Voter outreach in this senate district can make a huge difference in future countywide elections, and CCDP needs volunteers from across Charleston County to get involved this summer.
June Outreach Recap
- Charleston Democrats had a blast marching at the Charleston Pride Parade on June 3:
- CCDP was excited to have a presence at the Charleston Juneteenth Family Fest on June 17. We are grateful for the overwhelming number of Democrats who volunteered to staff our table and talk with Festival-goers at the Juneteenth celebration.
- Charleston Democrats were honored to hold their June monthly meeting at the First Baptist Church of James Island, a historic and leading community on James Island and within Charleston.
Charleston Democrats are looking forward to continuing the monthly meeting outreach in July. CCDP will be holding its July monthly meeting at the historic Snowden Community Center in Mt Pleasant on July 20 at 6:30 pm. Be sure to join fellow Democrats to discuss Senate District 42 voter outreach, as well as other exciting events for the rest of the summer.
President Biden is Investing in Charleston County… Nancy Mace Votes Against Investment (but Claims Credit for it!)
President Biden has passed a tremendous amount of economic investment through Congress, including the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, American Rescue Plan, Inflation Reduction Act, and the CHIPS & Science Act. In the Charleston area, Biden’s economic agenda is leading to over $50 million for projects such as local airport infrastructure, improvements to I-526 (by Long Point Rd), infrastructure to address flooding in Charleston (by Spring & Fishburne Streets), and money earmarked to reconnecting neighborhoods divided by I-26. The White House has released a detailed map displaying many local projects in the Charleston area.
Rep. Nancy Mace has unfortunately voted against nearly all of President Biden’s economic agenda. Of course, this has not stopped her from claiming credit when infrastructure money comes into Charleston! Rep. Mace recently showed up at a June 28 news conference celebrating that the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law was directing $25 million dollars to CARTA for environmentally friendly buses… even though she had voted against the Infrastructure Law!
CCDP called out Rep. Mace in Charleston media, noting that Rep. Mace had called the Infrastructure Law a “fiasco”, describing how she had labeled the specific grant program that awarded money to CARTA as an example of “socialism”, and asking Rep. Mace to be honest about her voting record in the future!
