Trey Gowdy announces retirement from Congress.  (The Hill, 1/31/2018)

Trump received 60.2% of the vote in 2016 compared to 62.6% for Romney in 2012 and 60.6% for McCain in 2008.

Clinton received 34.5% of the vote in 2016 compared to 36.3% for Obama in 2012 and 37.7% for Obama in 2008. 

A solid-red district, SC 4 will be a tough nut for the Democrats to crack.
