Democrat Annie Andrews raises $500,000 in congressional bid against SC's Nancy Mace
A Democrat aiming to unseat U.S. Rep. Nancy Mace, R-Charleston, in 2022 has raised $500,000, setting the tone for a competitive race in South Carolina’s 1st Congressional District.
Annie Andrews, a Mount Pleasant pediatrician who works for the Medical University of South Carolina, announced her run for the seat in November. On Jan. 3, with only two months of fundraising, her campaign announced it had broken the $500,000 mark.
More than 1,000 health care professionals have donated to her congressional run, the campaign said.
“I am deeply humbled by the unprecedented support our campaign has received since announcing just two months ago,” Andrews said in a statement. “Lowcountry voters are desperate for leaders from outside of the political world who are willing to step up and deliver positive change, and that’s exactly what I am offering our district.”
