Krystle Matthews is a Democrat running for South Carolina’s U.S. Senate seat.

Matthews is the state Representative for South Carolina’s District 117. She serves on the committees for Medical, Military, Public and Municipal Affairs, and Operations and Management.

Environmental policy, fair voting rights, affordable housing and women’s rights are key issues for Matthews.

Republicans and some Democrats have called for Matthews to quit after Project Veritas leaked audio of a conversation where she is reportedly heard talking about white MAGA voters.

Matthews said she would not step away from politics and said the audio was both edited and taken out of context.
