That's why I'm running as a Democrat for South Carolina's 1st Congressional District - the Lowcountry's seat in the US House of Representatives. Join my fight for Economic Justice for ALL of us and leave our kids and grandkids a better world.

Dimitri Cherny was the 2016 proud Progressive candidate for Congress in SC-01, running to replace Mark Sanford, and will be the candidate again in 2018.
