SCDP CHAIR STATEMENT ON ALEXIS FRANK CANDIDACY

Columbia, SC – South Carolina Democratic Party Chair Jaime Harrison released the following statement on Alexis Frank filing to run as a Democrat in the special election for the U.S. House of Representatives from the 5th Congressional District:

“I commend Alexis Frank for jumping into this race. Democrats in the 5th District are looking forward to a substantive primary campaign to hear how all the candidates would work to improve people’s lives. With Donald Trump and his rubber-stamp Republican Congress threatening to cause great harm to millions of Americans, the stakes could not be higher. Whoever 5th District Democratic primary voters choose, I am confident that Democrats will be unified behind a nominee with an agenda to bring South Carolinians together and expand opportunity for all.”
