There is now one less candidate in the Republican primary for the 4th Congressional district race. Greenville county businessman Andrew Smart announced he is dropping out of the race and throwing his support to Spartanburg county solicitor Trey Gowdy.
“I got in this race to make a difference,” said Smart. “It wasn’t going to be about me. I found another candidate who could make a difference. And spending time listening to his positions, what he would do, I told him he was a guy I could support.”
The 4th district seat is currently held by Republican Bob Inglis.
