Lowcountry Rep. Mark Stanford will visit with constituents Monday.
He will host a “coffee with your congressman” event Monday morning at the Hardees on Redbank Road in Goose Creek followed by office hours in the parking lot of Bed Bath and Beyond on Orleans Road in West Ashley at 5 p.m.
The House Republican primary in South Carolina is scheduled for June 12. Katie Arrington (R-Summerville), has already said she will challenge him in the race. According to data analytics site fivethirtyeight, Sanford votes in line with President Donald Trump’s position 72.9 percent of the time and he recently voted no on the March 22 appropriations bill.
Sanford served as the district rep from 1995-2001 before becoming governor from 2003 to 2011 and admitting to an extramarital affair in 2009. He has since returned to the first district seat in 2013.
