CONGRESSMAN AFFIRMS HIS INTEREST … 

The name of U.S. Rep. Jeff Duncan cannot be crossed off the list of possible 2018 South Carolina gubernatorial contenders …

How do we know this?

The third district congressman said so himself, in response to a social media message posted this week by Upstate, S.C. political consultant David Carter.

Take a look (the exchange is at the bottom of the screen capture) …

Duncan’s status as a possible 2018 gubernatorial contender is no secret.  It’s been discussed for nearly a year.

Conventional wisdom holds that Duncan won’t run … owing to the safety of his seat, his wife’s rumored reservations and the fact the third congressional district doesn’t provide as deep a political/ financial base as other Palmetto State districts.

Still, were he to run Duncan would obviously be among the frontrunners in the race … especially given the recent implosion of S.C. attorney general Alan Wilson.

We’ll have an updated status check on that contest soon …
