Democrat Joe Cunningham’s election on November 6th was one of the big election night surprises. And, it is already no secret that he can expect a major Republican challenge in 2020. His 2018 opponent, former state Rep. Katie Arrington (R), who ousted Rep. Mark Sanford (R-Charleston) in the Republican primary, found herself in intensive care after a terrible car accident, and then proceeded to lose to Cunningham, 50.7 – 49.3%. Ms. Arrington said yesterday, however, that she will run again. Speculation is building that Rep. Sanford may also launch a political comeback, and possibly again for the 1st District, but he is non-committal at this point.
