Bobbie Rose to Seek Congressional Seat

First Democrat to enter the field.


On Thursday evening Rose confirmed she will file the necessary papers for her candidacy on Firday, Jan. 25.


The race for the open seat in Congressional District 1 has its first Democrat.

On her Facebook page on Monday, Bobbie Rose announced her candidacy for the seat previously held by Tim Scott.

See who's in and who's out in SC1 thus far.

Rose's statement, in part:

"I am planning to make another run for the 1st. Congressional District Seat. And we may have other Democrats running as well! This will give Dems a real choice in this election, and a real opportunity to make a difference in the lives of the people in our district.
I'll keep you posted moving forward, and ask for your continuing help and support. Thank you!"

It will be Rose's second attempt to win the seat. She was defeated by Scott in November by 28 percentage points.
