Katherine Arrington, a Department of Defense member, has announced her resignation.
Arrington, who served as the chief information security officer, was suspended nine months ago, in May 2021, for allegedly leaking classified information.
The statement comes among speculation Arrington is nearing her decision to enter the CD1 race against incumbent Republican Nancy Mace.
Arrington would bring a lot of experience to her campaign if she decided upon running. Back in 2017, she served in the South Carolina State House.
Arrington will likely also bring lessons from her 2018 bid against Joe Cunningham.
