Former Congressman and Democratic gubernatorial candidate Joe Cunningham was welcomed to Clemson on Thursday by Clemson College Democrats. The stop was part of Cunningham’s college tour, far ahead of the elections in Nov. 2022.

Cunningham, the frontrunner in the Democratic primary, was previously the representative for South Carolina’s first district, which includes Charleston, Hilton Head and Beaufort. Other candidates for the nomination include Senator Mia McLeod and activist Gary Votour.

If he is nominated, he will be against current Governor Henry McMaster, who is running for his second term after succeeding Nikki Haley following her appointment as ambassador to the U.N. {...}
