Democrat seeking GOP nod for Mulvaney's Senate seat?


Not surprisingly, the jockeying is underway to fill Mick Mulvaney's soon-to-be-vacated State Senate seat. While some had floated name of State Rep. Deborah Long, fresh from a landslide win as the first Republican re-elected to House District 45, our sources indicate she wasn't interested.

Reportedly, long-time Fort Mill Democrat Bayles Mack is looking at making a bid for the seat. Mack  is a long-time Democratic Party figure in York County in addition to holding a number of appointed posts. This involvement includes recent state campaign contributions to Vince Sheheen, recently-defeated State Rep. Herb Kirsh and several York County Democrats, as well as contributions to the campaign of recently-defeated Congressman John Spratt ($1000 in 2006, $1000 in 2008), Inez Tenenbaum's failed 2004 Senate bid, Alex Sanders' failed 2002 Senate bid ... and even Al Gore.

Which doesn't really explain why Mack is considering running for this Senate seat as a ... Republican?!?

We're sure Mack won't be the only one looking to run for this seat, so stay tuned.
