Charli Wessinger endorses Republican Catherine Huddle for S.C. House

Lexington County Councilwoman Charli Wessinger has endorsed Republican Catherine Huddle in the race for the S.C. House District 85 seat.

Wessinger, a Republican, said Huddle’s fiscal conservatism and financial background make her the best choice to serve Irmo-Chapin taxpayers. “I am excited to support Catherine Huddle to represent me and my community for S.C. House,” said Wessinger.

A conservative firebrand and longtime local government watchdog, Wessinger upset longtime county councilman Johnny Jeffcoat in a June 2020 County Council primary.

Rep. Chip Huggins, who has held the District 85 House seat since 1999, is not seeking re-election. The District 85 seat includes much of the Lexington County portions of Irmo, Seven Oaks and Chapin.
