Just saw a strong refreshing performance by Elizabeth Colbert Busch on Daily Rundown with Chuck Todd. Steven's Colbert's big sister 'is in the hunt' for an upset in the race for R-con Tim Scott who went to the Senate. This will bring it down to 16 seats. Let us take a good look.
Here is some of the msnbc prose.
Elizabeth Colbert Busch wedged in crowded special election race

Since South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley tapped Rep. Tim Scott for the Senate, the competition for the 1st District’s congressional seat has become a very crowded race.
There are 16 Republican candidates, including former Gov. Mark Sanford and Teddy Turner, son of media mogul Ted Turner.
Democratic candidate Elizabeth Colbert Bush, older sister of comedian Stephen Colbert, is running for office for the first time. She explained to The Daily Rundown’s Chuck Todd why she chose to get into politics now.
“I think it’s time to have a common sense approach to what’s happening, and to represent my district, and to stop this extreme behavior and dysfunctional behavior in Washington, D.C.,” she said.
Right off the bat, She fits the model of what it will take to turn red seats blue.
A smart progressive technocrat she 'leans forward' to focus on the district and modern solutions to reduce waste and increase productivity while protecting the social safety net and the ability of US business and non profits to invest in research and training to build jobs and markets.
Chuck Todd is not easy, but even he seems to know a 'real contender' when he meets one. She did very well.
