Ray Craig, of Lake Wylie, recently filed with the S.C. State Election Commission (SCEC) to run against incumbent U.S. Rep. Mick Mulvaney for the state’s 5th Congressional District, which includes Kershaw County. Accompanied by two of his three children and his former roommate from Clemson, Craig, a Republican, filed with the SCEC just before noon March 30. Following the filing, Craig traveled to Chester where he introduced himself to voters, saying he was a “‘better choice’ over an incumbent who has largely disappointed his 10-county constituents.”
