South Carolina has some fierce defenders of democracy, both longtime incumbents and fresh faces. Although the Low Country is uniquely vulnerable to flooding and other climate impacts, not enough candidates are running on climate change. Joe Cunningham, running for Governor, has spoken out against oil drilling in the past, and Annie Andrews, running for the First Congressional District, will put science first. Some of the standout candidates running for statehouse include environmental scientist Michelle Brandt in the Charleston area (District 114), incumbent Todd Rutherford in Richland County (District 74), and climate activist Chris Salley in UpCountry (District 7).
