LANDRUM, S.C. — U.S. Rep. Bob Inglis is in a tough race to keep the seat he's held for six terms.

The real estate lawyer faces prosecutor Trey Gowdy; state Sen. David Thomas; college professor Christina Jeffrey and business and technology consultant Jim Lee. The fourth district GOP primary winner will face unopposed Democrat Paul Corden in the November election.

Inglis has a relatively conservative voting record but is being criticized for his support of 2008 bank and Wall Street bailout legislation as well as his support for legislation aimed at curbing global warming.
