The current roster of candidates are raising money for their campaigns and preparing for a battle that will surely overwhelm the senses of every registered voter in the Pee Dee area.
First order of business is being top dog of their respective parties. Appearing as a front-runner is just a common sense way to earn more campaign contributions. With several candidates putting together dollar amounts in the 7-figure range, this is certainly the priority this early in the race. The best way to establish the pecking order is with debates and the Democratic candidates participated in a debate this past weekend in Myrtle Beach. It was well covered by several local outlets but we really like that WPDE published a transcription of the questions and candidates answers and The Sun News got post-debate impressions from voters and candidates. The event was hosted by the Horry County Democratic Party and the Myrtle Beach NAACP.
