Another Republican has joined the race for the First Congressional District. Mt. Pleasant attorney Mark Fava made his announcement Monday that he will run against incumbent Congressman Henry Brown for the First Congressional District seat.
So far, Congressman Brown, the son of late Carol Campbell, Carroll Campbell III, and Fava are the Republicans running for the seat. It is reported three Democrats are looking to run as well. Fava comes from a political family, as his father was a Charleston County administrator and member of the county council. Fava is 46-years-old and served on the Mt. Pleasant Town Council.
The First Congressional District covers Horry, Georgetown, Charleston, Berkeley, and Dorchester counties.
