South Carolina's 6th District's Democratic Congressional House majority whip, Jim Clyburn, is facing four opponents this campaign season who all feel he's lost touch with the state he's meant to represent.

The primaries, which take place on June 8th, will see Clybrun running against hopefuls DemocratGregory Brown and RepublicansNancy Harrelson, Colleen Payne and Jim Pratt.

Clyburn's seat has always been considered among the safest Democratic seats in the country, but his opponents and residents of the 6th District, which covers much of eastern South Carolina, are ready to see changes not only on a national level, but in an area that remains the poorest in the state.
