Columbia Mayor Steve Benjamin is endorsing the campaign of Democrat Adair Ford Boroughs, who is running for the U.S. House in South Carolina’s 2nd Congressional District. Boroughs, an attorney and 2002 Furman University mathematics graduate, is looking to take the seat that has been held by U.S. Rep. Joe Wilson for the last 17 years. Boroughs taught mathematics at Mauldin High School for two years before going on to Stanford University Law School to earn her J.D. in 2007. Free Times, a company of The Post and Courier, covered the news.
