On this episode of the South Carolina Lede, host Gavin Jackson is joined by the Associated Press' Meg Kinnard to discuss two storms which recently affected the Palmetto State — one political, the other an actual hurricane. They talk about former South Carolina Congressman and Gov. Mark Sanford's announcement that he is running as a Republican challenger against incumbent President Donald Trump in 2020, as well as look at South Carolina's reponse to Hurricane Dorian.

Then, South Carolina Public Radio's Russ McKinney stops by to quiz Gavin about South Carolina history in this week's Did You Know segment.

Plus, the week's top news, campaign trail updates, and more!
