BEAUFORT, S.C. - For the first time in forty years, a Democrat will hold South Carolina´s first congressional seat. Congressman Mark Sanford held the position for three terms and Republican Candidate Katie Arrington is blaming him for her loss. "The goods news... we are neck and neck in this race and we´re still gonna win this thing," Joe Cunningham told the crowd at his watch party Tuesday night. And he was right. The Democratic candidate beat out Arrington by 1.4 percent. Even though she won four of the five counties, Cunningham took the biggest -- Charleston. "We are really, really, really, happy with this victory,"

KA ran a really poor campaign and had no particularly distinguishing messages. She was very pro-Trump in the primary and that got her the win over Sanford, but then she had nothing in the campaign against Cunningham. Sanford would have cleaned up against Cunningham.

KA was sidelined by that horrible auto accident she sustained, which must have disrupted her campaigning plans and ability. That much I know.

Get out your gloves and scarves, Columbia. After a weekend full of chilly rain, forecasters are predicting the area may be getting a little snow. A mix of snow and rain is expected to fall on the Columbia-area Sunday night into Monday morning, National Weather Service Forecaster Jeff Linton said Friday. Because of the rain that is expected to accompany the icy precipitation, Linton said the snow likely will not stick or accumulate on the ground. If the forecast shifts and temperatures drop more than already expected, that increases the chance of a white dusting on the grass Monday morning, he

LONDON - World stocks attempted a rebound on Friday with Asian and European markets gaining modestly after the previous day’s selloff, while oil prices fell as producers bickered over the details of an output cut. The pan-European STOXX 600 index was up 1.2 percent by 0857 GMT, after falling as much as 3.2 percent during Thursday’s rout, which was triggered by the arrest of the chief financial officer of Chinese smartphone-maker Huawei in Canada. The arrest, coming on the heels of a 90-day trade truce between the United States and China, triggered fears that the dispute could escalate further and dented

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump said without evidence on Thursday Arizona “is bracing for a massive surge” of immigrants along part of the border that has no protective fence, reiterating his call for Democrats to back funding for his proposed border wall. “Arizona, together with our Military and Border Patrol, is bracing for a massive surge at a NON-WALLED area. WE WILL NOT LET THEM THROUGH,” Trump wrote in a post on Twitter, appearing to maintain pressure on lawmakers seeking to approve legislation to keep the government open through to Sept. 30 next year.

President George H.W. Bush had a long-lasting impact on Israel and the Middle East. From the Gulf War to the Madrid Conference – what will Bush 41 be most remembered for? Would he stand a chance if he had run for president today? And what is it like to be a presidential historian in the Trump era? Also: A serious look at Israel-Diaspora relations, as we discuss Troy’s newly published book “The Zionist Ideas: Visions for the Jewish Homeland – Then, Now, Tomorrow.” Is it okay to be a nationalist and how should Jews on the Left view Zionism?

That is the lowest unemployment rate the United States has seen since 1969, according to BLS. “November’s jobs report shows an economy straining beneath the weight of a callous GOP special interest agenda that

Sen. Elizabeth Warren has the core of her 2020 team in place if she runs for president. She has the seed money — there’s $12.5 million ready to go, left from her recent Senate run — and a massive email list she’s amassed over years, boosted by a $3.3 million investment in digital infrastructure and advertising in the last election alone. Her aides have been quietly shopping for presidential campaign headquarters space in the Boston area in recent weeks, according to a source with knowledge of the move. All that’s left is for her to give the green light.

The Supreme Court declined to review three cases relating to Republican efforts to defund Planned Parenthood at the state level Monday, over a vigorous dissent from Justice Clarence Thomas. The dissent was significant because it indicates that Justice Brett Kavanaugh sided with the high court’s liberal wing to deny review of a lower court decision that favored the nation’s largest abortion provider. “So what explains the Court’s refusal to do its job here?,” Thomas wrote. “I suspect it has something to do with the fact that some respondents in these cases are named ‘Planned Parenthood.

Hundreds of young demonstrators turned out Monday on Capitol Hill to push Democrats on a package of ambitious environmental goals — including a nationwide transition to 100 percent power from renewable sources within as little as 10 years — that´s collectively dubbed the Green New Deal. Already embraced by Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., an increasingly influential figure on the left, the Green New Deal is designed to nudge prospective Democratic
