Freshman 5th District Congressman Mick Mulvaney will spend the next two years in Congress, after a convincing victory against political newcomer Joyce Knott.

Knott, who worked on the campaign of former longtime Congressman John Spratt, declared for the race after a lack of democratic candidates surfaced to run.

Mulvaney says Knott brought a new voice to needs of South Carolina’s 5th Congressional District.

Mulvaney, who spent a good portion of his time outside of Washington meeting with constituents across the district, says he gained a good idea of what voters want to see in their elected officials.

Mulvaney says that he still faces an uphill challenge in Washington — from his own colleagues.
