UNION — The people of Union County will soon have the opportunity to meet, see, and hear in person the six Republican candidates running for the US House of Representatives District 5 seat.

In a statement released Monday, the Union County Young Republicans and the Union County Republican Party announced that they will host a debate for the GOP candidates for the District 5 seat on Friday, March 10 at USC Union. The press release states that the event will begin at 6 p.m. with a meet and greet with the candidates on the Main Floor of USC Union’s Main Building. The evening will continue with the debate at 7 p.m. in the USC Union Auditorium.

The press release states that the public will be able to submit questions to be asked of the candidates during the debate. Persons who want to submit questions may do so by either emailing them to unionscdebate@gmail.com or by submitting them in person the night of the debate at USC Union before it gets under way.

The event will be free to the public.

On Tuesday, Union County Republican Party Vice Chairman Tyler Shugart said that all six candidates running for the Republican nomination for the District 5 seat have said they plan to attend the debate.

The candidates running for the GOP nomination for the District 5 seat are:

• Chad Connelly

• Sheri Few

• Tom Mullikin

• Ralph Norman

• Tommy Pope

• Kris Wampler

The US House of Representatives District 5 seat became vacant when Rep. Mick Mulvaney was appointed by President Donald Trump and confirmed by the US Senate as Director of the US Office of Budget and Management.

The primary for the Republican nomination for the District 5 seat will be held May 2 and, if needed, a runoff will be held two weeks later. The special election to fill the seat will be held June 20.
