Cunningham to announce running mate in governor's race Monday

South Carolina Democratic gubernatorial candidate Joe Cunningham will announce the person who will serve as his running mate at a special event Monday afternoon.

Cunningham will name his selection for lieutenant governor in Greenville at 5:30 p.m., a release from his campaign states. The venue for the event has yet to be announced.

Last week, the former U.S. First District Congressman announced a list of nine finalists for the role.

“The person I choose for Lieutenant Governor will be ready to lead on day one,” Cunningham said on July 18. “Our ticket will represent the future of South Carolina and the amazing potential of our state. I am committed to selecting a qualified, visionary leader to join our team and help usher in a new generation of leadership for South Carolina.”
