Oconee County resident Sheri Biggs has announced her plans to run for the SC’s 3rd Congressional seat.
Oconee County resident Sherri Biggs has announced her candidacy for South Carolina’s 3rd Congressional District.
Her announcement comes after U.S. Congressman Jeff Duncan, R-Lawrence, announced on social media on January 17 that he would not seek re-election. Duncan’s current term expires on January 3, 2025.
South Carolina’s 3rd Congressional District is primarily a rural district in the northern and western parts of the state, known for its Republican Party affiliation, according to political analysts.
It includes all of Abbeville, Anderson, Edgefield, Greenwood, Lawrence, McCormick, Oconee, Pickens, and Saluda counties, and sections of Greenville and Newberry counties.
According to a release, Biggs is a lieutenant colonel in the Air National Guard, a certified family nurse practitioner, and a psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner. The Salem resident describes herself as anti-abortion, pro-Second Amendment, and a lifelong Republican.
Biggs says she is also a strong supporter of former President Donald Trump
“I believe President Trump has shown that he has the ability and resilience to make America great again,” she said.
In a video posted on Biggs’ website, she said the nation is struggling, and Washington is devastated because it has a health problem — mental, financial, and spiritual.
“I’m running for Congress to continue my life of service and address Washington’s health problem through servant leadership that seeks truth — not power-seeking politics as usual,” she said in the video. “Although there are many challenges facing us today, I have unwavering faith that America remains a land of resilience, dreams, and faith in Almighty God and can be healed from today’s problems with more bold, conservative, and servant leadership. I offer.”
