The Agenda

Out mayoral candidate is top fundraiser in Charleston, S.C.

Victory Fund-endorsed candidate Ginny Deerin has continued to receive strong community support in the Charleston, S.C., mayor’s race. Deerin’s second quarter fundraising was the strongest showing among the seven candidates currently in the race. At nearly $260,000, Deerin’s quarterly total edged out her opponents and put her in a close second for overall campaign fundraising.
These totals illustrate the momentum that Deerin’s candidacy has generated within Charleston. In a statement, Deerin said she was “excited about the broad support and enthusiasm that is fueling our campaign.”
If elected, Deerin would be the highest-ranked openly LGBTQ official in South Carolina, and one of the most prominent openly bisexual elected officials in the nation.
