Rick Wade on Civil Rights
Wade filed paperwork with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) this week--and if he and Scott earn their respective party's nominations (as they are expected to do) it would set up the first all-black U.S. Senate race in recent memory. Maybe ever.
"A Scott-Wade matchup would allow South Carolina to see a campaign unlike any it--and few if any other states--has ever seen: a bona fide race for U.S. Senate between two African-American candidates," a liberal columnist wrote earlier this year.
Richland County councilwoman Joyce Dickerson--another black Democrat--has said she's running against Scott in 2014, but she's not viewed as a credible candidate.
We expect Wade--who helped lead Obama's 2008 minority turnout effort--to help mobilize black voters in a big way in 2014.
