State Sen. Marlon Kimpson, D-Charleston, speaks on the Senate floor on Jan. 20, 2022 about the proposed congressional map, which he calls a racially-driven gerrymander. The map was approved by the Republican-controlled Senate along party lines and heads to the House for its approval.

This episode of the South Carolina Lede for January 25, 2022 features: a look at the state Senate debate over its newly passed congressional map; data on the Palmetto State's fluctuating labor force; the latest on the current COVID-19 surge in South Carolina; and more.
