U.S. House of Representatives

On May 17, 2019, Rep. Cunningham voted along with his party line in favor of the radical Equality Act.[5]

2020 election

Despite fake election ratings,[12][13] Cunningham lost re-election by a very narrow margin in the 2020 elections to Republican opponent Nancy Mace, a state representative.[14] His defeat was largely attributed to being unable to overcome a strong challenge in the mostly Republican-leaning district, particularly in not winning over enough voters on the issue of offshore drilling unlike in 2018.[15]
