COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) – U.S. Rep. Jeff Duncan is heading back to Congress.
The Republican incumbent earned a fifth term beating Democrat Mary Geren in Tuesday’s election in the western South Carolina 3rd District.
Duncan is often the most conservative member of South Carolina’s congressional delegation. He promised in his campaign to bring the values talked about around the dinner table to Washington.
Geren is a college instructor from Anderson who touted education issues, telling her story about how she was the youngest in a house of seven and the first person in her immediate household to graduate from high school and college.
The 3rd District covers eleven South Carolina counties in the northwest part of the state.
