Democrats to vie to U-S Congress
By the deadline over the weekend, two local and area residents had filed to run to be the Democratic nominee this year for SC Congressional District Three. The seat is now held by Republican Jeff Duncan, who is seeking re-election. The Democrats who have their vision set on Washington are Hosea Cleveland of Seneca and Barbara Jo Mullis of Fair Play. The chairwoman of the Oconee Democratic Party, Rosellen Aleguire, says she, as a private citizen, is going to vote for Mullis.
