The son of the late governor Carroll Campbell is running for the state’s First Congressional District.
Carroll Campbell III announced Wednesday in Mt. Pleasant as a Republican nominee. His father was considered an instrumental figure in building the South Carolina GOP.
Campbell will run against Congressman Henry Brown next year, who is now serving his fifth term in office.
Campbell said Wednesday that he wants the job because e believes that Brown is part fo the out-of-control spending on Capitol Hill.
The First Congressional seat was once held by Governor Mark Sanford.
