"We've opened a lot of stores and we have never seen support like this from a local chamber. This is fantastic." -Colin Stephenson, Sales Manager of Sherwin Williams
With the Republican primaries less than a month away, the candidates for South Carolina House of Representatives District 118 will take some time to debate the issues and talk about their vision for the Lowcountry. The debate will air live at 1 p.m. May 27 on TalkOne Radio. If time permits, listeners are encouraged to call in with questions at 1-843-800-1492. TalkOne Radio is available on RadioMax or at talkoneradio.com. In a surprise move in late March, Mike Covert, a Republican who has served District 7 on Beaufort County Council since 2017, dropped out of the race for the 1st Congressional district. Covert turned his focus on running for Bill Herbkersman’s S.C. House District 118 seat, a position Herbkersman has held since 2003. TalkOne Radio’s debate format includes a two-minute opening statement, six questions with rebuttals permitted and a two-minute closing statement. Questions are submitted by each candidate prior to the debate with three questions chosen from each candidate. Prior to the debate, each candidate will have 30 minutes to review the questions to plan their response. “Before you go to the polls on June 9th, get to know the candidates, ask the questions that are important to you!” said Alan Flowers, host of TalkOne Radio.
