In a crowded race for the 1st Congressional District along the Charleston-to-Myrtle Beach coast, it's seeming increasingly like Republican Tim Scott looking will be the first black Republican to go to the U.S. House from the South since Reconstruction ended.

The Post and Courier has a nice write-up on the matter; read it over here.

So if you're curious why Scott wasn't interested in a TV debate with Democrat Ben Frasier, this could well be why.
