Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-S.C.) endorsed Elizabeth Colbert Busch Saturday in the race for Sen. Tim Scott's former House seat.
"We know what it's going to take to win that seat," Clyburn said at a union meeting in Hanahan, according to a video taken by Patch. "I'm going to be endorsing Elizabeth Colbert Busch today because I think it's important for us to get a nominee out on the Democratic primary that will have a chance at winning."
Clyburn emphasized Colbert Busch's work with unions in his endorsement. Patch reports:
The Democratic congressman said Colbert Busch in Congress would be the key vote needed to protect workers' rights. Clyburn's District 6 butts against much of District 1, which has been held by Republican for more than 30 years. Colbert Busch is running against Ben Frasier in the Democratic primary for the seat vacated by Sen. Tim Scott following his appointment to the U.S. Senate.
