Charleston, S.C.’s Linda Ketner is taking another look at a U.S. House run after incumbent Republican Rep. Henry Brown announced he’d retire at the end of the term.
From The Hill:
In an interview with The Hill, Ketner said Brown’s pending departure has created a “new environment” and she’s going to make a decision “within the next week” about whether to enter the race.
