SC Democrat to run against Nancy Mace for Lowcountry seat in Congress

U.S. Rep. Nancy Mace has a new Democratic challenger for her Lowcountry congressional seat.



Annie Andrews, a pediatrician at MUSC Children’s Health, announced she is running against the Charleston Republican in a two-minute video posted to social media on Monday.


“Even on the toughest days, I’m proud to call myself a pediatrician,” Andrews said. “But right now, I believe the failure of our elected officials to care about our children is the greatest threat facing our children,” citing the COVID-19 pandemic, gun violence and the quality of schools.


Her campaign will focus on “issues that matter most to the Lowcountry, like getting past this pandemic, addressing climate change, protecting our coastline, fixing our roads, and yes, tackling gun violence, which is now the leading cause of death in our kids.”
