As an early primary state, and the first state to hold an electoral contest in the South, South Carolina voters play a vital role in selecting American presidents.  During this year’s Ballots and Brunch, CofC political science faculty Gibbs Knotts and Jordan Ragusa will discuss their new book, First in the South: Why South Carolina’s Presidential Primary Matters (USC Press, 2019). The event, co-hosted with the Bully Pulpit Series, will also include reflections from a panel of HSS alumni stationed on the front lines of the South Carolina presidential primary. We’ll bring the brunch and you bring the questions for a morning of thought-provoking discussion.
