On this edition of South Carolina Lede, host Gavin Jackson is joined by the Post and Courier's Caitlin Byrd to examine the 2020 battle for South Carolina's Fist Congressional District. Four Republicans have announced their candidacy for the seat, a sign of how focused the state's GOP are on flipping that Lowcountry district after Democract Joe Cunningham delivered a major upset in last fall's election.

Then, South Carolina Public Radio's own Russ McKinney stops by to quiz Gavin in this week's Did You Know segment, and they're joined by special guest Bradley Fuller, host of Sonatas and Soundscapes.
