“I have known Brandon for a  long time and have seen firsthand Brandon’s ability to lead and desire  to serve.  I know that he will work hard to protect and expand access to  affordable health care and create an economy that works for all,” Biden  said. “He understands that we must put people first above politics and  as your Congressman I know Brandon will always do what is right and what  is best for the people of the 4th Congressional District.” 

In  response to the endorsement Brown said, “Former Vice-President Joe Biden  has been a champion for women’s rights, civil rights and health care .   He is a leader on the international stage.  I am so grateful to my  friend, who is no stranger to the Upstate, for the confidence he has  placed in my ability to serve.”

How to Win Elections in a System'Not Set Up for Us'

 Brandon Brown, a Democrat who beat  four white primary competitors in the South Carolina district being  vacated by GOP Representative Trey Gowdy. Neither race is yet on the  radar of the national party committees as potential Democratic pickups,  but both Johnson and Brown are hoping that appeals to faith—Johnson is a  pastor—and economic opportunity will attract voters who traditionally  back white Republicans.

“You hear phrases like, It’s not your time. You hear questions like, Can you win?  And you have to overcome those hurdles,” Brown told me. He said he sees  an opening to attract voters hurt by Trump’s tariffs in a district  where the major employer, BMW, supports 10,000 jobs and $35 million in  local economic activity. “Until we, as a party, stop taking for granted  areas and start saying, ‘Hey, we’re going to be everywhere,’ we’re going  to continue to see losing elections,” Brown said.

During Wednesday's forum at USC Upstate Brown set himself apart from the other candidates.

  

Brown clearly led the Democratic forum when he talked about legalizing marijuana 

Greer, SC - Brandon Brown, Democratic candidate for Congress in South Carolina’s 4th district, exceeds expectations during candidate forum. 

Five Democratic Candidates participated in a forum at the University of South Carolina Upstate on Wednesday evening, hosted by the local Democratic Upstate College Chapter.

Brown separated himself from the other candidates by his ability to articulate his campaign platform of putting the people of the 4th Congressional District first. When asked the nationally debated question, about legalizing marijuana, Brown says “Stop making it an issue, treat it like alcohol, legalize it and reduce the number of people behind bars.”

Brown spoke to the importance of addressing the high cost of education, healthcare reform and his position on how we address the criminal justice system. 

Brown also discussed the importance of African Americans knowing how to interact with law enforcement agents. He spoke about the incident at Starbucks and how those young men properly handled themselves.

Brown says, “I am committed to putting the people in South Carolina’s 4th Congressional District first. When it comes to jobs, resources and advocacy. I was raised here, I worship here, I work here and I live here. I am fighting for my friends and neighbors and our future.”

Mitchell stands with Brandon

  Theo Walker Mitchell, a former Senator and first African American gubernatorial candidate endorsed Brandon Brown last week. 

  

When both the Republican and Democratic parties urged Theo Mitchell to run for the General Assembly in 1972, it was a sign that times were changing in South Carolina.

The former Legal Services lawyer chose to run as a Democrat. 

On Nov. 7, 1972, he became the first African-American elected to the statehouse since Reconstruction. His background couldn’t have been better: a graduate of Sterling High School, Fisk University, and Howard University Law School, he had been a Greenville attorney and housing activist for years. The following year he was elected to the board of directors of the Chamber of Commerce, the first black man to have been honored with the post, and was president of the S.C. Council on Human Rights. Although he was appointed a judge after being re-elected in 1974, he continued his involvement in state politics.

In 1984, he was elected to the State Senate, and in 1990 won the Democratic gubernatorial primary, although he was swamped by Carroll Campbell in the general election.
