MYRTLE BEACH — The two candidates seeking South Carolina’s new 7th Congressional District seat have poured more than $1.3 million into the race.
Reports filed last week with the Federal Election Commission show that Republican Tom Rice of Myrtle Beach has a big cash advantage heading into the final days of the campaign.
The figures reflect spending through the end of September and show that Rice had spent almost $840,000 and had about $390,000 on hand heading toward Election Day.
His Democratic opponent, Gloria Bromell Tinubu of Georgetown, had spent about $467,000. The report says she had only about $26,000 left.
