Palmetto Scene continues to air back-to-back episodes (Thursdays, 7:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., ETV) that will focus on candidates running for federal office in South Carolina.
Although the biggest interest has been focused on the presidential race, here in South Carolina, all 7 congressional seats and one U.S. Senate seat are up for grabs. We have offered each qualified candidate running for federal office in S.C. a chance to address their constituents. ETV uses a set of Candidate Interview Participation Criteria to determine those who can participate in these programs. Not all qualified candidates were available, but we offered their challengers a one-on-one interview to share their ideas.
The programs are hosted by Charles Bierbauer, Dean of the College of Mass Communications & Information Studies, at the University of South Carolina and a former CNN Senior Washington Correspondent and ABC News Moscow Bureau Chief. The schedule is as follows:
