Not even a month after Henry Brown's decision not to seek re-election and the race for the Republican nomination for the First Congressional District seat (all but a guarantee of election in November) bears little resemblance to what it was two months ago.
The entry of Paul Thurmond into the race has generated lots of attention, and speculation is growing about the possibility of North Charleston State Representative Tim Scott switching from the Lt. Governor's race to the Congressional race.
We've also become aware of Scott cancelling a couple of candidates' forums outside of the First District, another sign that he may be about to switch races.
All our sources say he's all but in the race, with an announcement to be made as early as next week.
