CHARLESTON, SC (WCBD) – On Monday, Charleston Leaders hosted a breakfast featuring a question and answer between congressional candidates Katie Arrington and Joe Cunningham.

The goal was for leaders of the city to come together and find ways to help the community.

The discussion was moderated by News 2’s own Brad Franko — during that discussion was one topic which caused some debate: offshore drilling.

“We’ve stood against offshore drilling since day one and we will continue to stand against it because it’s important for our economy, to keep those rigs as far away as possible,” said Cunningham.

“There is no oil out there, but I’m the only candidate who is going to have a seat at the President’s table to ensure that our coast is protected,” said Arrington.

Both candidates are encouraging everyone to get to the polls Tuesday.
