Joseph Kendrick “Joe” Cunningham is a lawyer and Democrat politician currently representing South Carolina's 1st district in the United States House of Representatives. Cunningham is a member of the Blue Dog Coalition and the New Democrat Coalition. A sleazy liberal hypocrite, he denounces lobbyists yet worked as one to lobby for a yacht club in Florida.[2]

U.S. House of Representatives[edit]

2018 U.S. election in South Carolina's 1st district[edit]

Cunningham was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in the 2018 midterm elections, defeating Republican Katie Arrington by just over 1% of the vote.[3]

Tenure[edit]

Cunningham voted in favor of the Climate Action Now Act on May 2, 2019.[4]

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

Cunningham voted in favor of condemning Donald Trump's supposedly “racist” comments.[6]

Cunningham voted against the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2019.[7]

Rep. Cunningham voted in December 2019 in favor of the left-wing bill H.R.3.[8]

Cunningham voted along with his Democrat colleagues in favor of the sham impeachment resolutions brought against Donald Trump.[9]

Cunningham voted in favor of the implementation of the USMCA.[10]

In February 2020, Rep. Cunningham joined six House Democrats in voting with the majority of Republicans against the Democrat-led bill Protecting the Right to Organize Act of 2019.[11]

2020 election[edit]

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]
