Myrtle Beach attorney running for congress

Parnell Diggs, a Myrtle Beach attorney and former president of the National Federation of the Blind of South Carolina is running for the new 7th Congressional District.

The 7th Congressional District includes all of the Grand Strand and most of the Pee Dee.

Diggs was born blind and says he's running because he's worried what kind of country will be left behind for people like his 11 year old son.

The only other Democrat in the race right now is State Representative Ted Vick from Chesterfield County.
